I think we need to slow down a bit on Dillon's ceiling. Yes, he's a very good prospect. But he didnt do much of anything in juniors until he was 20 years old, and didnt light the world on fire statistically in the AHL(albeit on a bad team in his first season). If he turns into a really solid, 30 point top 4 guy, we should be absolutely thrilled with that. Of course I'd be thrilled with a 40+ point #2 d-man, but thats getting your hopes a bit high if those are your real expectations.

As for #1, I agree with those that say Chiasson. He's got all the tools to be a 1st line caliber player. Size, strength, Hands, good skater. Just needs some time in the AHL.
