Genoway and Connelly are AHL offensive guys. Bagnall's obviously a career AHLer. But when you look at our system, we have Dumba, Seeler, and Draeger outside of Houston (and some will add Gunnarsson or Jobke to that list). If our Houston group were a bit more balanced instead of being all offensive or NHL guys I think we'd be fine.
Defensemen take a while to develop. I have questions on Seeler and Draeger and their contributions. It's too hard to project where they can be in 4-5 years.
