Yeah and they have the 3rd or 4th worst prospect pool in the NHL so don't expect a lot of those needs to be filled from within. Like I said hoard picks build the system try and make smart trades and FA signings.
I'd agree with this. Except I think we have the third line centre in Burmistrov, so I'd say 1st and 2nd line centres.

Scheifele could hopefully at least be the 2C, but it's gonna be a heck of a time finding a 1C if we don't finish with a good lottery pick soon... I hope we don't have Calgary syndrome. I'm not sure if this group we have is a Cup calibre team or just a playoff clincher, but if Chevy and Zinger don't think these guys are a few pieces away from going all the way, they need to start dismantling and upgrading the core THIS year.
