We don't have a terrible prospect pool.

We have 4 NHL players in our system.

Anisimov, Sanguinetti, Del Zotto, Grachev.

And other guys like Doyle, Stepan, Hagelin, Byers, and Owens may have something to say too.


Grachev playing this well in a short period of time is not shocking, IMO, as it is seems.

He was pegged as a first round talent. He fell because of the lack of transfer agreement, KHL vs NHL fiasco.

He is the real deal. We got VERY lucky no one snatched him up before we did.
