Alexander Nylander

Alexander Nylander is going to get far more leniency than anyone else on this list, as he was just acquired at a high price this offseason.

Still, he was selected 8th overall in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft and he is 21-years-old. Nylander has already had two seasons to develop.

His reputation isn’t pretty leaving Buffalo, which adds greater concern. It behooves Nylander to build a better reputation in Chicago.

He could make the NHL squad out of training camp or he could build on his poor reputation.

It is really up to him, but either way, the Nylander storyline will be fascinating to follow. Oh, and you know, he’s got a ton of talent:
