But if you've got Coyle, Larsson, Granlund, Zucker, Haula, Phillips, and Bulmer who all project to be better NHL'ers, along with Koivu, Bouchard, Heatley, Setoguchi, Clutterbuck, Latendresse, and Gillies, where does Almond fit? Short term, maybe a fourth liner for a year or two? And that's not even counting the obligatory "tough guy" that every team seems to need.

My thoughts are that our top six should be pretty skilled when the prospects develop. Our third line should have plenty of skill and forechecking ability as well. The fourth line should be guys like Bulmer, Clutterbuck, Gillies, etc who we like but shouldn't be getting more then 7-8 minutes ES time because there are far better options.
