    Default Rookie point leaders this year?

    My league gives a bonus for rookie points, and I'm far from being any kind of expert when it comes to prospects. Does anybody care to give me a ranking of who you think the best rookies will be this year from a pure points perspective?

    This year only, so throw long term potential out the window.

    Thanks as always!

    EDIT: I absolutely butchered the sub-forum choice - could somebody please move this to the 1 year forwards section (if that exists)?

    Pettersson, Mittelstadt, Svechnikov, Necas, Dylan Strome (if he's still considered a rook), and Zadina. Roughly in that order.

    Thanks! A few lists like this are exactly what I was hoping for.

    For the record, rookie eligibility is the same as it is for the NHL.

    Seem safest to produce this year:
    Pettersson
    Svechnikov
    Mittelstadt
    Donato

    Should be in good spots, but not as confident they'll produce enough to warrant owning:
    D. Strome
    Necas
    Zadina
    Cirelli

    The next group is all more line-dependent -- could be in the top tier if they get lucky after the preseason:
    Sikura
    Johnsson, A
    Tolvanen
    Borgstrom
    Yamamoto
    Thomas, R

    Later flyers:
    Andersson, L
    Lindblom
    Gaudette


    Dahlin, Niku, and Heiskanen for defense (in that order...maybe Gustafsson in Chicago or Hronek in Detroit too)

    Jarry, Saros, Ullmark and Husso are the goalies I think have the best shot to be relevant (all require injury or poor production by starters ahead of them)
    Points-only, Full Keeper Dynasty League
    Active roster (no starts, just total points): 12 FW, 6 D, 1 Goalie

    Forwards: Kucherov, Hall, Pacioretty, Couture, Johansen, Nichushkin, E. Lindholm, W. Nylander, Hoffman, Pavelski, Eberle, E. Kane, Mi. Granlund, Arvidsson, Little, Jarnkrok, Koivu, Ty Johnson, Palat,

    Defense: Gostisbehere, OEL, Hamilton, Josi, Krug, Vatanen, Pietrangelo, Vlasic

    Goal: Holtby, Darling, Varlamov

    Farm: Juolevi, Borgstrom
