    Default Which rookie would you sign for the next 3 years?

    I have a 3 year contract that can be given to a rookie. Who would you sign?

    Here's who I could sign this season:

    Sam Bennette
    Nikolaj Ehlers (I'm leaning towards Ehlers as he has the highest potential with playing top line minutes given his current situation)
    John Gibson

    OR

    Do I hold off and look to draft and sign someone next year like Auston Matthews*? Strome, Marner, Crouse and Rantanen also come to mind. The benefit of signing this year is that I can save a draft pick and not focus on drafting someone like Matthews early but I'd like your opinions. Thank you!

    Well I dont think you need a goalie so my vote goes to Ehlers.

    If you can for sure get Matthews over Ehlers do that, but if there is a chance you do not get Matthews then sign Ehlers

    Matthews is your first choice IMO. I don't fully get the disadvantage of choosing him now vs having a pick; maybe I'm missing something.

    After it's Ehlers, then a toss up between Bennett (already producing in the NHL), Strome (high ceiling), Marner (high ceiling).

    Since you have 2 solid golie keepers in their prime, Gibson is not worth the pick.

    This, all the way. My instinct would have been to take the goalie over the other two, but this is an easy call.

    Though I am intrigued by this francophone Benette. I wonder if giving him some French heritage might improve his long-term outlook? :P just playin' bud. Go Matthews all the way if you are assured to get him. Though with keepers like that, I don't understand how you would be..? Is it a tiny league?

    To be honest guys, I'm going to have to sign Rask OR Muzzin to a 1 year contract. I won't be able to decide until I find out what's available in next years draft, however. And just to put things in perspective with how points add up in my league, Muzzin is ranked 9th in overall fpts for defenseman. Doughty is ranked 10th. Hits, blocks, and shots really add up in our league.
