poile can draft stud/good defenseman in spades but man we need a game breaker up front. always have and still dont have one. its tough when you are good and not great and constantly draft in the 15-25 slots.

we either need to start tanking (oilers ??) ... jk.. or win a cup with all defense and pekka
Hartnell? I'm sure Radulov could have too, but we all know that story.

I may be the only one, but I'm very optimistic with our forward prospects. I know all of them won't work out, and a lot of them will be grinder types, but I don't think I've ever felt better about our young forwards.

If Wilson and Smith keep progressing and learning the game I'm sure they'd be able to hit 20+ goals multiple times.
