To say they're young is almost not good enough to stress how fortunate we are to have players of that skill at that age. I'd say we're better positioned than the hawks defensively... and if mcdonagh can step up we might be right on despite the age gap.

Del Zotto - 1990 born
Duncan Keith - 1983 born - first breakout season (more than 40 points): 08-09. he was 25. The year before that he was +30 which can't be ignored but DZ had 37 points at 19. Will he hit 70 like keith? Eh but still he moves quick along the development curve.

Marc Staal - 1987
Brent Seabrook - 1985

Staal had 3 less points last year. He had half the +/- but the hawks won the cup which says a little about how the rest of the teams were configured, in comparison.
