    What would you predict from our rookies coming in?

    Default Good Question...

    I've really liked what I have seen from the rookies up front. Lots of speed and skill. I think Stoklasa and Lazo will get the most ice time and will be pushing for 2nd line spots. I think both could have 30 points this season.

    Ridgeway has been the most impressive beyond that. Throughout camp and the preseason, he always seems to be a name that continues to do good things on the ice.

    Hughesman is another one that has impressed me. He has good finish, but will need a good centerman to get him the puck. If Lazo centers a line for him I think you'll see him put up double digit goals.

    Gardiner appears to be a power forward, but I wouldn't expect a lot of goals from him this season. He'll be the most physical of the skilled youngsters though.

    Shinnimin is gonna be a fan favorite. The kid can fly and with the new rules he will be a handful for defenders. I wanna see pylons like Scott Gabriel try to defend a waterbug like Shinnimin.

    Wutzke reminds me of some former power forwards, but I just can't remember who. Maybe Jordan Cameron. He'll need to improve his footspeed, but he has the swagger that I like and that we desperately lack up front. He'll be hitting bodies, not the net, but he'll pick up a few crashing the net.

    Jackson has been the one rookie that hasn't really showed me much. Sunday was the best performance I can remember from him. Friday's game I thought he was invisible and can't recall him really impressing me at camp.

    Wilgosh looks to be a little bulldog. He is fearless at laying the body and seems to create havoc with his play. I think he'll have to unseat a veteran to keep a spot. He'd probably be able to fill a role similar to that of Hoff last season.
