Look at Buffalo this year... Who would have guessed Connelly would play like this... Ribs looks much better then Connelly ever did in the past... What makes the difference is that all there wingers are dangerous now.. Dumont, Pomainville, Hecht, Kotalik, Affinoganov, Vanek. We are not there yet but we could be in two years where Buffalo is today...

Koivu, Plekanek, Chipchura, Ribeiro
Perezhogin, kostsitsyn, Higgins, Ryder, Latendresse, Kovalev

We never know what the future as lined up for us...
Agreed. But Emelin and Chipchura are at least 2 years away from making any sort of BIG impact. And two years from now, who know how the team will look like?

Meanwhile, I like the Core of the team

Koivu
Kovalev
Ryder
Plekanec
Higgins

Markov
Souray
Rivet
Komisarek

+ I expect Kostitsyn, Emelin, Latendresse and Perezhogin to start having more active roles in the next years.

Add to that a "Wade Redden type" and a "Jason Arnott type" player, and I think we have a lineup that will be contending in 2007-2010.
