Prospect wise Hartford is not as strong this year as in the previously couple seasons.

The best forward Anisimov is still very young and almost a point a game player. I think his upside is really top 6. After that it's a dropoff. Byers got hurt--but his upside is bottom 6 forward as is Dupont who got off to a nice start but then tailed off. Moore was up last year. It's not that he's a bad player but he wasn't very noticeable. Soryal seems interesting--may have a future as a 4th line goon with some skills but is going to have to improve his skating. It seems at this point it may have been better to send Weise back to the WHL as he's produced almost nothing the last two months. Pyatt's having a better year but he's not close yet. So 1 really good prospect--2 maybe 3 other bottom line players.

Sanguinetti seems to still have defensive issues to work out. Both Potter and Fahey made real runs for an NHL job. Fahey's hurt again but Potter seems to have a realistic NHL future. Sauer almost seems to be doing pretty well after a serious injury. I think he also has a very good chance. At least 2 maybe 3 of these should be NHL'ers.

Wiikman and Zaba don't have much experience. They're hopes of making it right now rest on either Lundqvist or Valiquette getting hurt. More likely with that kind of scenario the Rangers would try to make a deal.
