By this time last year, the word was out on Craig Smith and Matt Read as two guys who were ready to step in and make some noise in the NHL, despite being unknown, and unowned in a great number of leagues.
So my question is, does such a player or players exist this year? Is there someone most of us are missing entirely who has a great shot to step in and make an immediate impact? Conacher might do it, but he is pretty hyped at this point. Killorn? He is about the right age, and is coming out of the NCAA, where good prospects are often overlooked, but is he likely to make an impact this year? Any other guys you can think of?
