    How Many 2015 First-Rounders Will Make Their Teams This Season?

    Full-time, that is. Meaning at least ten games so we're sure they burn a year of their ELC's.

    With this being such a deep draft it should make for some fun guessing to see how many of these guys end up making their teams.

    Below is a list of confirmed signings from the 2015 NHL Entry Draft:

    NJD — Pavel Zacha
    TOR — Mitch Marner
    PHI — Travis Konecny
    BOS — Jakub Zboril
    CGY — Oliver Kylington
    FLA — Lawson Crouse
    MIN — Joel Eriksson Ek
    COL — Mikko Rantanen
    PHI — Ivan Provorov
    SJS — Timo Meier
    CAR — Noah Hanifin
    PHX — Dylan Strome
    BUF — Jack Eichel
    EDM — Conor McDavid

    Outside of the obvious (McEichel) I can see Provorov, Hanifin and Barzal making it.

    I don't think our first rounder will make the team but I would say 7 for the rest of the league

    Based on team needs/situations: McDavid, Eichel, Strome and Zacha (because why wouldn't the Devils ruin a good prospect?). Maybe one of the mid-late round guys like Svechnikov or Eriksson-Ek surprises in camp.

    Top guys I see not turning pro just yet: Hanifin, Provorov, Marner

    I would say Rantanen but with the Aves signings and trades they may not need him there

    I think Strome gets 9 games. No reason for them to rush him if Duclair and Domi make the jump full time.

    Gonna go with 6 guys getting past 9 games

    Hanifin signed his ELC today.

    http://hurricanes.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=774548

    So correct me if I'm wrong, but that makes McDavid, Eichel, Strome, and Hanifin?

    Timo Meier also signed with the Sharks.

    Ivan Provorov with the Flyers as well.

    So far, wrong on Hanifin. Didn't think he'd sign his ELC this summer.

    @frank_seravalli
    The #Coyotes have sent No. 3 pick Dylan Strome back to the OHL's Erie Otters.
    So far the list is looking like McDavid, Eichel, Hanifin, Zacha, Crouse, and Rantanen. Anyone I'm missing?

    EDIT: Barzal still with the Isles, playing in their preseason game right now.

    Out of those guys, IMO only McDavid, Eichel, Hanifin and Rantanen make it past 10 games.
