If they can bring character, desire, dedication and fulfil the role, I'll be very happy. Whether they blossom as offensive top 6 guys or develop into the mold of character bottom 6 forwards, I think you can win with players like this. Bloodlines play a role in this too, it makes it comforting, in my opinion. I like bloodlines and although they don't mean squat if the kid can't play, I think these kids can indeed play.

A huge bloodline bust is Jared Staal. I am a huge Staal family fan but I've always said Jared wouldn't make it, I even said a couple years ago I had doubts he would ever produce in the AHL. I watched him every now and again during his OHL days when he came to town and never once did I see anything in his game. I like bloodlines but I'm not blinded by them.

Back on topic, I like these kids and think they can play and be an integral part of the Winnipeg Jets future whether it be excelling as top 6 forwards or bottom 6 forwards.
