Rank the top 5 rookies this year
 
Not really familiar with this years rookies...so can some of you hockey guys help out by ranking the top 5 in your opinion. Thanks

Old Nap 01-08-2013 07:53 PM

Um, none of them have played yet? Are you fishing for what cards to look for? Only rookies from last year are in current sets, and most are not much to brag about. Krieder is about the only one. Opinions will vary.

Bring me some damn Dougie Hamilton and Ryan Spooner already

Rinkwraith 01-08-2013 08:06 PM

1) Nail Yakupov - EDM
2) Mikael Granlund - MIN
3) Jonathan Huberdeau - FLA
4) Dougie Hamilton - BOS (downgraded only because D, but might supercollect him myself)
5)Sven Bartschi - CAL (UD Series 1)
6) Chris Kreider - NYR (UD Series 1)

Is glennie from Dallas any good? I'm just seeing if anyone put him in their top 5.

Glennie has struggled since leaving junior. Many have labelled him as a bust, although I think it's a little too early for that. Not having a good start to his pro career, though.

Vladimir Tarasenko & Jaden Schwartz

newton615 01-08-2013 10:55 PM

After 5 years go by and everyones gotten a chance to do what they will Dougie Hamilton, Radek Faksa, and Nail Yakupov will be the best 3 players eligible for your question

I'm not too high on Dougie Hamilton after his less-than-stellar performance at the World Juniors.

I don't think Radek Faksa is as good as you seem to think, either.

gergs1134 01-08-2013 11:08 PM

God I hope Granlund is the player he looks to be.

Just a rough stretch for Hamilton, Im not worried about him making the jump at all. We'll talk again about Faksa in 5 years

Dr kicker 01-08-2013 11:43 PM

With a name like Spooner you have to get a decent career.:)!

I pulled the saphire quad rookie gems auto 1/1 of glennie and don't know much about him....so I guess fishing to see if he has potential

frozenntimesports 01-09-2013 09:46 AM

Mikhail Grigorienko, he went 12th overall to Buffalo. Should have gone 1st or 2nd.

Johnnycoldcuts 01-09-2013 10:20 AM

I agree with Rinkwraith for the most part. If Justin Schultz makes it on the Edmonton roster though, watch out. He's the best offensive D-man I've ever seen (see stats with OKC in the AHL). I would move him in at 3 or 4 and take out Hamilton. He wont log enough time in Boston.

gonzagacubs 01-09-2013 12:58 PM

Chris Krieder was really good last year in the playoffs for the Rangers. Gotta be #1 in my opinion.

Johnnycoldcuts 01-09-2013 01:24 PM

Im skeptical about Kreider. He scored at a 30 point pace while shooting at 17% and starting 70% of his shifts in the offensive zone last playoffs. I'll be surprised if he steps in and makes an impact, especially if he can't unseat Hagelin and is stranded on the third line of the somewhat stacked Rangers. Plus what he is doing in the AHL right now is average at best.

BackupGoalie 01-09-2013 05:19 PM

Here are my top 10 rookies:

1.) Nail Yakupov
2.) Vladmir Tarasenko
3.) Alex Galchenyuk
4.) Jonathan Huberdeau
6.) Justin Schultz
5.) Dougie Hamilton
7.) Mikhail Grigorenko
8.) Mikael Granlund
9.) Ryan Strome
10.) Sven Baertschi

Kent Clements 01-09-2013 05:22 PM

Ryan Strome NYI

Look at his numbers this season. 5 goals and 7 assists in 33 games in the AMERICAN HOCKEY LEAGUE.

He's got a terrific case of the New York Effect. A few decent games and he's billed as the next big thing.

He's not going to be nearly as good as people think.

i think he does unseat Hagelin on line 2 the rangers lines will look like this imo

Line 1
Gabby, Richards, Nash

Line 2
Callahan, Stepan, Kreider

Line 3
Hagelin, Boyle, Pyatt

Line 4
Asham, Halpern, Rupp

Johnnycoldcuts 01-09-2013 11:17 PM

Not sure if he'll be considered a rookie but with Nash gone, Cam Atkinson has a chance to tear is up this year in Columbus.....well, as much as one could in Columbus.

Even average is stretching it. For the "Next Big Thing", one point every three games is not a good way to start. I've seen a lot of players with much better numbers than him not even get shots in the NHL. Why the Rangers would consider putting them in their top nine, I'll never understand. Unless he scores 50 points this year, then my criticism will stop.

Sorry, I really haven't kept up with hockey since last year. The lockout kinda left a bad taste in my mouth and really haven't had any desire to start watching again just yet.
