while radulov has had a good start to camp,let's not get carried away here...those 6 forwards on the top 3 lines ahead of him all look great right now too...that's the real question down the road...you have guys like hartnell that should and would be up on most teams top two lines,and hall's not far behind and upshall is probably right there not to mention shishkanov maybe next year.. looks to me that only when walker's contract is up next year will there be a legitimate top two line slot possibly opening up anytime soon,and then two years from now when kariya becomes a UFA again...so radulov has time to develop,time to finish juniors and get a year of the ahl behind him possibly..

now of course with this depth of top 2 line type forwards the preds could make a big deal anytime...but you would think first the preds would either have to struggle this year (god forbid) or just simply decide that no matter the cost they have to have a top two line center AND that they thought for sure upshall or radulov was ready to step in and play immediately

now weber could sure come along sooner..maybe next year you would think...i don't think it's an accident eaton has only the one year contract right now...weber is slated to take his spot next year in my mind..

today coach peterson told me in a type of whisper,"man we have some team here", then added "the only thing we lack is size on the blueline, and to get this center thing decided"...you could almost see weber in his mind's eye when he said it honestly
