Our top 35 are all *possible* NHLers, and among our top 15, I think everyone except Bourque has a 50-50 chance or better to make it.

Do I think all 14 will make it? Probably not. But at 50-50, if we get 7 guys in our top 15 and another 3 guys in the following 20 (16-35), we are golden.

We all have a good young base with Staal, Girardi, Dubi, Cally... I just remembered they just gave up Zherdev and now I am pissed again.

Who knew 10 months ago that we would lose both our Russian wingers, Cherry and Z, without getting anything for them. (The pick we got for Cherry went for Ant, who was also lost.) Dawes and Prucha also both busted. Last year, we had hopes that at least one would become a decent winger.

Other than Cally, Kreider and Grachev, we don't have much in the way of potential top-6 wings going.
