Would be nice to see a deep playoff run, which would really give us all an opportunity to guage exactly where the current NHL roster is at.

Thanks for your thoughts on Laakso. I do not recall the suggestion about him as a top 10 draft pick, but I wonder if this may have been around the time he suffered the ankle injury? If this is the case, it might have scared some NHL teams. Appears to have worked out very well for Preds brass...

You're right, Ryan Parent is an amazing prospect...'nuff said.
Laakso was a top 20 prospect for quite awhile heading into his draft year, but injuries/inconsistency seemed to cost him that year....similar to what happened to Evan McGrath of the Wings.
