I agree that Byers is more likely than Bourret. However, if Slats can't come to terms with Avery, and Bourret has a breakout camp, I don't think it's too far of a stretch that he'd be given a shot at the beginning of the season.

I also agree with what people are saying about developing the players you draft, but you can't mention us in the same breath as Anaheim or Detroit. There isn't a better drafting team in the league than Detroit. Some of it may have been luck, sure, but they are a deep, deep squad and it's thanks to their scouting.
