Mathieu Carle is having a career year statistically in the AHL with 37 points in 63 games. Not impossible he gets called up at some point.

Pavel Valentenko has 19 points in 52 games, not sure how he's playing since he's a defensive D. Not sure about his NHL outlook either.
I like Timmins, but the 2006 draft was 6 years ago. If players break into the NHL 7 or 8 years after being drafted, then they are not successful draft picks.

I make an exception for Mathieu Carle. He may have been a good draft pick, but he got a lot of serious injuries, so it's not a strike against the scouting and development staff.
