As with mining gold, with luck a few of them are nuggets (but I'll still be happy with flakes).
What I see is that the last time we had this many young players to be excited about (closer to 7-10 years ago than 3-4), the guys we were excited about were good hockey players, but didn't have (m)any specific skills that would turn them into good NHL players. Right now though, guys like Kadri, Biggs, Rielly, Gardiner, etc. all have facets of their game that could become elite and separate them from other players on the team or in the system.
