Lack (top 3 AHL goalie)
Jensen (another top young pwf)
Schroeder (great 2 way fwd progressing like CoHo)
Connauton (PP QB AHL All Star)
McNally (a top NCAA offensive d-man and is in his freshman year)
Cannata (a top NCAA goalie)
Rodin (good 2 way foward)
Corrado (a top OHL defender)
Labate (almost a ppg pwf in the NCAA as a freshman)
Sweatt (good checker with speed like Raymond)
Sauve (good shutdown defender who can hit)
Polasek (good 2 way defender)

then we have some projects:
Friesen (top OHL defensive foward) who could turn into a Pahlsson or Malhotra
Archibald (gritty big pwf) could be a gem if he works on his skating and effort as those are the only things holding him back
Honzik (raw goalie plays similar to Rinne) 1st year he's ever had a goalie coach so he's only going to improve
Grenier (decent pwf in the QMJHL) has speed size and hands, just raw and inexperienced.
Blomstrand (gritty checking line foward) developed an offensive game in jr Swedish league but has yet to show it in the SEL since being moved up.

Definately not as bad as u say we are. We've got 3 great offensive/2 way d-men. A couple decent defensive d-men who have hard shots that they could play on the PP too. Then we have 2 of the best goalie prospects when we don't even need young goalies because of Schneider. Have some good young pwf and 2 way fowards. Last but not least we have a few projects that if we get lucky like other teams could pan out but at worst a couple could still make the NHL in bottom 6 roles
no way is that middle of the pack. a lot of guys who could turn out to be "nice" players, but no real top end talent, no one you could point to and say he's definitely gonna make an impact in the nhl. a lot of project picks too.
