This is a team that is building for the future. For the first time in a long time, we have young depth at center and some toughness to boot. I see a lot of what Philly has built with young talent down the middle and a franchise defensemen. We might even have a power forward. In the short term however we need a vet center who can kill penalties and provide some leadership.
I'm sure I'm homering it up, but from what I see in prospects and young NHLers we have a potential
second line offensive center
two-top 9 two way centers
first line scoring winger
physical top 4 defensemen-more 2nd pairing then 1st
mobile shutdown defensivemen (although he's 26)
jack of all trades top 4 defensemen-possible first pairing dman.
Now whether or not they all reach their aforementioned celing is a big question
, but this is the wagon Sabres are hitched to for the forseeable future.
Now when I look at that, I see lots of defensmen, lots of centers, but not much in the terms of wingers. Especially young two way wingers, although you could sign me up for another younger top 9 winger with size and an edge too.
On a personal note, I would LOVE two potential franchise defensemen, but hey who won't.
