    What can we expect out of Sprong next season? Since it was announced that he will likely be full time with the Penguins next year.

    Hes available in my league and im wondering if hes a better option then some of my other rookies.

    it will fully depend on opportunity. does he get top 6 time or 3rd line time? Can he stay healthy? He should be able to push Sheary down the line up and Hornqvist will get hurt. Optimistic expectations would be 20-25g - 40-45pts.

    I'd bet on 35-45 points. He may get time on RW with Crobsy, Malkin or Brassard, but he will also get 0 PP1 time (depends on how much Hornqvist gets hurt). Also I think he may get scratched on occasion as he is not great in his own end.

    I'm on the fence regarding Sprong next season. There's no hole on Pittsburgh's wings for him to fill, he'll have to take someone's spot, he has the talent to do it but I have my doubts that having 2 one-dimensional RWs (he and Kessel) on a team is the best plan.

    I think the majority of the "full time with the Penguins next year" talk stems from the fact that he just lost his waiver exemption status. If he stays a Penguin I think he'll be in the press-box anytime he struggles waiting for injuries to make room for him. I wouldn't be surprised if he's traded in a package for a defenseman in the offseason. Calgary could use him.
