WBS should get a much-needed infusion of young talent next season with Morrow, Kühnhackl and Payerl (and possibly Bennett and/or Hanowski) coming in. Plus rookies Despres, Samuelsson, Gibbons and Thompson will be more experienced. To go far they will need a good goalie, though. I'm not convinced Killeen is good enough. But there's always NCAA free agents available. Well, one less now that PHI has signed Ohio State's Cal Heeter.

Grant definitely saved his NHL ambitions by stepping up this season when others went down. Veilleux still has too much potential to just dump him. There is no reason not to keep him around for another year and see whether he can ever stay healthy. I expect the Pens to part ways with CPZ, Modig and Valabik, making room for the beginning contracts of Morrow, Kuhn and Payerl at least.
