Pointing out that we might of had high hopes in 06 about our future doesn't really mean that our current hopes are invalid. This prospect pool is regarded in higher esteem outside of our fans by impartial sources. At worst, we're going to end up with a homegrown, above average defense out of the players we have. We know what we're getting out of Staal, MDZ, and Girardi and they're already solid NHLers. McDonagh was considered a better prospect than MDZ and Sangs was pretty close. Out of the rest of the loads of names, I'm sure we'll find at least one guy capable of being the 6th defenseman. As far as offense, I'm not sure we're going to turn out any 1st liners but we'll be set with cheap options for the back 9 for years to come. We'll have the cap room to sign legit 1st liners some time. We're not there now but, if managed correctly, we'll be there sooner than later.
