I would bet on both Forsberg and TT playing in the NHL in 2 years. That doesn't necessarily mean we will see what they are really capable of right away. And really, the only ones who will be any different are Yakupov and Murray. Unless you want to go the low risk, low reward route and draft Gauce or something.

The other guys just aren't physically ready yet.
