That's kind of a leading question as there are legitimately about 5-10 legitimate 1st line forward prospects in the entire NHL.

But to answer your question the short answer is we are not one of those teams who have a prospect who forecasts as a legitimate impact player. Our current group of forward prospects project out as 3rd liners. Chris Brown is likely our top forward prospect and he projects as a physical third liner with second line upside. Other prospects like Miele and Shinimin have the offensive upside of second line centers but are going to have to develop their two way game to get a crack at the NHL. Their development is hardly a certainty. They will be given opportunity though with this franchise considering the holes that will be opening up in a season or two. That is why they signed with us.
