If we look at our prospect pool under 25, I see:

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Gallagher
Leblanc - Eller - Kristo
MacMillan - Bournival - Palushaj
Schultz - White - Blunden

Emelin - Subban
Tinordi - Beaulieu
Bennett - Weber


What's our biggest organizational need? Who are the players that we should be targeting at the draft? Who's realistic? Who may be flying under the radar?

We have a lot of prospects but where do they measure up? We have Berger, Archambault, Fortier, Pribyl, Avtsin, Holland, Berger, Trunev, Dietz, Ellis and Stejskal. What is their potential?

I think with our transition this year to youth, a lot of fans, who would otherwise not pay much attention to the draft, may take a lot more interest this year.

Let's start a discussion on the draft. A lot of you have some great insight into prospects and it would be great to hear it.
Keeps going back to a #1 center. They are hard to acquire but a necessary for a Cup.
