    Default Expectations for Young Guns

    What are your expectations for the following players...

    Cody Hodgson, C, BUF
    Jacob Silfververg, LW, OTT
    Mark Scheifele, C, WIN
    Alex Galchenyuk,C, MON

    Drafted them all in my keeper league. Do they all get top 6 forward ice time and PP time? What do you expect out of them in the shortened season?

    C: Hall, Backstrom, Galchenyuk (C/LW)

    Hodgson should definitely be a top-6 guy in Buffalo, and will hopefully score anywhere from 20-30 points. Silfverberg should also be a top-6 guy, and he's been great in the AHL, so I'll say the same sort of thing for him. Anywhere from 20-30 points. Galchenyuk and Scheifele I'm a lot more skeptical of, just because they are so much younger. Winnipeg has Little and Jokinen on the top 2 lines, so even if Scheifele makes the team it won't be in a very offensive role. Galchenyuk might make the team, and the Canadiens are pretty weak at C, but I wouldn't expect much from him and be thrilled if he hits 25 points. My expectation would be between 10-20 points. Things might change as the week goes on and camps get going in earnest, but for now that's what I'm saying.

    Cody Hodgson, C, BUF - nice sleeper pick. He is due. His time is now. Top C mintues, 1st line pp minutes. Needs good primary support from Pommy/Ennis/Vanek
    Jacob Silfververg, LW, OTT - he'll get the opportunity, top 6 mins, 2nd line pp time
    Mark Scheifele, C, WIN - not ready
    Alex Galchenyuk,C, MON - not ready

    Hodgson - solid pick, projected to centre between Vanek and Pominville, underrated offensive playmaking abilities could suprise people...25 pts plus

    Silfverberg - hope for 20 pts

    Gally and Scheifele wont make the teams this season IMO
