I know it might be a shocking revelation but your 3rd and 4th lines are actually important, so prospects like Byers matter too.
A lock for the bottom six isn't valuable at all because how often do you see players that are never going to be more than bottom six players stay with a team for that long?

Sure they're important, and I'm not discounting how important it is to have depth amongst your system, but Byers has no business being ranked top 10 amongst our prospects, especially with how deep our system is right now.
