Of the rest, I expect Staal to become a star. Dubi might become a star but I doubt it. Dawes is an even bigger longshot. This is not a lineup littered with potential superstars or great players. They are either not here yet or we are years away from competing for the prize.

With luck they might win a Cup but with luck one could say the same thing for almost every team in the league. This is currently a very non-physical team without great offensive firepower. Only if the youth greatly accelerates their skills does this team not face an immediate bleak future, in my opinion.
