I love the prospects side of NHL hockey!

So my question is,

Based on the way our prospects play and the way our current roster predators play, which prospects would replace which veterans over time?

Not saying they would necessarily (I mean if we got another Weber through the system we would definitely not be trading Shea! lol), I just mean which prospects are in the mold to take current predators spots in time??

I thought of a few,

Jerred Smithson - Nick Spaling

Ryan Suter - Jon Blum

Martin Erat - Blake Geoffrion

Steve Sullivan - Michael Latta

Pekka Rinne - Chet Pickard (I didnt say Lindback because I think Pickard gets shot first)

Patric Hornqvist - Taylor Beck

Colin Wilson - Austin Watson

Thanks for a good chuckle.
