    Default Best 18 y/o rookie

    Who was the best rookie between Jack Hughes, Kappo Kakko and Kirby Dach? Who would you start a franchise around? who will have the best career overall?

    Welcome to the forums.

    Kakko for me unless your league settings has FOWs. Then I'd switch it to Hughes.


    10 Team, Points Only, Cash League

    25 Man Roster (no position), top 20 point getters count at end of month
    Keep 20/25 at seasons end, Cut 5 to FA for redrafting
    Goalie points W=2pt L=-1pt SHO=2pt

    Stamkos, Tavares, Eichel, Couture, Wheeler, Lee, Gusev, RThomas, Kucherov, Nugent-Hopkins, Burns, Zuccarello, JBoqvist, JSchwartz, KPalmieri, KConnor, Necas, Yandle, Point, Konecny, TBertuzzi, NSchmaltz, Vrana

    G- Vasilevskiy, Bobrovsky

    Hughes. I think that in time, he'll be a power play wizard.

    I think I have to go with Kakko... I think he is just going to be surrounded by more talent and therefore produce better!

    Ville Heinola. But Kakko or Hughes past 19/20, real even between the two for me.

    Between those 3, it's Dach for me. On Sports-Reference, Dach shows up as a 19year old, which gets you this list for 18 & 19 year olds:

    23 points: Dach/Kakko
    21 points: Hughes/Farabee

    Defensemen, Heinola was 18:
    Boqvist
    Heinola
    Sandin

    I think the best rookie in that list is either Boqvist or Farabee, due to quality production in fewer games, and a bit more defensive responsibility to boot. However, they aren't the same draft year. If I have to pick from one from the most recent draft, I'd also think Heinola was the best player, but they kept him to 8 games, when he was clearly ready.

    Who will have the best career is tough to guess, but I'd probably say it's somebody who will be in the running for a future Calder, which includes Heinola, but none you listed. I tend to take the field over a couple options.
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1 backup G, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only categories that matter are Goals, Assists, Save% with a shutout bonus. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G: Bobrovsky
    Backup G: F Andersen
    D: Ekblad, Yandle, Carlson, DeAngelo, Letang, Makar
    F1: Couturier, Giroux, Voracek
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, MacKinnon
    F3: Stamkos, Point, JT Miller
    F4: Bertuzzi, Tavares, Seguin

    Bench:
    G:
    D: Barrie, M Reilly, Heiskanen, Klingberg, Morissey, Weegar
    F: Bailey, Benn, Guentzel, Johnsson, Labanc, Mikheyev, Necas
    Reserve: Datsyuk
