I couldn't agree with you more on all points, except Kessel.
I honestly worry about Gus because of his size, taking longer to come into his own, where his positional play "smarts" has to adjust to the NHL. A guy of his stature has to learn to survive in the NHL. He made some mistakes, which are natural. He needs more ice time.
Bourdon's concussion has me a bit concerned.
Manning I'm very high on.
Also high on Ghost and Lauridsen. I saw Lauridsen at camp. He looked great (against prospects I know, but he was a force.)
