Our scoring depth is okay, but we don't exactly have guys who are going to light it up ala a team like Ottawa. I'm pretty sure you'd rather have their best 6 forwards, even though they're in a slump.

Our "top-six":

York-he's legit, but 2nd line
Dvorak-slowly proving he's also legit, but again, 2nd line
Smyth-legit, 1st/2nd line
Hemsky-young, but I'd argue legit, 2nd line right now
Torres-close to legit, 2nd line, I'd like him better on 3rd though, keep him hidden
Isbister-not right now, 3rd line
Reasoner-good guy, need him on the team, but not top-six, perfect 3rd line center on a good hockey team
Oates-I sure hope so, but who really knows, 2nd line
Comrie-would be completely legit top-six, 1st/2nd line

Don't really think there's an argument for anyone else. There's no real superstar in there, barely even supporting stars. We could be better, that's my main point I guess, and that we shouldn't be ranking ourselves with the big teams yet. Not alot of guys I'd say you could out-and-out put on the first line of a very good hockey team, YET.
