Who are the big rookies this year? Will they still be released?

The player all have either gone back to their OHL/WHL/QMJHL clubs, have gone overseas, or have decided to play in the AHL. The only rookies that will have cards this year are the ones that played less than 25 games last year, or who have played less than 6 games in the previous two years, and who do not have cards out already.
You could just start ripping ITG. They have every player as they are not licensed, and do not need special permission to include junior teams.
