NHL is a very tough league with extremely good goaltenders and very tight defensive systems. It's getting hard develop pure top-6 forwards because 50 pts and + is hard to reach now (for example, if we say that top-6 forwards are players that score 50 pts and more consistently)

Cowen-Karlsson-Ceci-Wiercioch
Borowiecki-Blood-Wikstrand-Claesson
Wideman-Gryba-Sdao-Boyle-Fransoo-Aneloski
Lehner-Bishop-Driedger-Brassard

I'd say our future on defense/goaltending looks extremely bright

We have a bunch of good forwards prospects with various ceilings (many have 1st/2nd line potential) but I'd say without hesitation that our defense is ahead in terms of development... Not a surprise, Murray started to build from the net out 4 years ago
