Luckily, this is cyclical. Carolina used to have one of the worst pools, and now I believe they have one of the best. I have faith in Timmins, and we'll get our pool back to being as strong as it once was.
That's because all it takes is one draft year to turn it around...another year like 2007(Mcdonaugh, Pacioretty, Subban, Weber) and we go from weak to above average.

But like Montreal below me mentioned, we had 4 guys make the jump last year which was a significant hit to the pool.
