You sometimes have players like Jamie Benn that are ready right out of juniors ... and Dallas might, might have another guy in Reilly Smith (at least GMJN said he thinks so). However, you don't panic and blow a good think you've been building for years just because fans get impatient.
I'm really sort of pencilling in Garbutt for a bigger role, Glennie finally making the jump if he quits being a tool, maybe Reilly Smith. And maybe maybe one of Nemeth or Oleksiak. Chiasson has an outside shot, but we'll see.
Also a reminder that we traded the two guys that should be mainstays on this team... you know, those two guys from the 2005 draft and haven't seen much except Benn come out of the draft in the past 5 years?
