    I'd be happy with 20-25 points from him this year and helping out on special teams. Give me like 10-11, 12-13, 9-12 in that range. Slow progression is fine.

    Ok, guess I should've read the whole first post. I have to go with Kakko then since he had such a rough year last year.

    Kakko.

    After seeing how he dominated on the world stage, literally willing his way around the rink and bullying his way to huge goals - I want to see that in the NHL. It's so great to watch and to have that type of unique talent on my team on a nightly basis would make me so proud.

    And really its not about him exceeding expectations either, its about meeting them - which is kinda scary.

    Chytil. It's time for him to step up his entire game. Stop sucking on faceoffs. Average about a 40 point pace this season.

    Going to go with Lemieux here. He brings something that is a change from most of the forwards. He can influence a game in different ways and can be an effective player.

    Chytil is a good answer because him exceeding expectations gives the Rangers one of the best 1/2 punches down the middle in the league.

    Miller and/or Chytil.

    Both would fill huge positional needs.

    I think Kreider is going to have a freaky great year.

    Based on how he is viewed here - definitely Chytil. Howden second only because you get better bang for the back from the more talented Czech.

    Chytil would be nice too.

    I mean anything below 1.x for PPG could be considered meeting expectations.

    Alexis Lafreniere.

    I've seen a lot of 500 goal scorers in the Rangers lineup. I’d like to watch one from cradle to the HOF.

    Kakko because im positive on Lafreniere, if Kakko overachieved we would have a ridiculous amount of scoring power.

    35 goals would be a great year for him. I feel be can do it.

    Kakko needs to have at least 35 points.

    I've had a feeling about Robertson since seeing him in Traverse tourny. He's not flashy or superstar material, but I sense he'll be better than people think he'll be.

    i think Robertson can grow into a Beukeboom type. Not sure what Miller is.

    Don't think he's that physical....that's my only concern -- that fans will look at this size and expect him to be the second coming of Chara.

    Robertson has huge shoulders like Beuk. I see him filling out. No, he’s not as physical.

    Chara towers over Robertson and is sooo unique.

    From what I saw at Traverse, he's almost Fox-like with efficient plays and decisions. Intelligent with the puck. Positioning. Good offensive instincts.

    I expect Laf to become a 30-50 player ... so I would love it if he became a 40-50 or 35-55 player.

    Otherwise, I think KK will become a 30-30 player, so I would love it if he became a PPG player.

    Miller cause they really need a LD
    Chytil as a legit 2nd line C would be close
