Its hard to say that. in 05 bergeron was the only addition (RNH)... guys like carter perry getzlaf richards would have been able to attend nhl camps much like schieffley strome huberdeau jenner and on Defense in 05 phaneuf seabrook webber would have been able to attend camp much like harrington hamilton reilley murray now.. so i know this time around the players arent on the level of the guys in 05. but a lot of the guys are drafted by bad teams and probably would have been in the nhl. So it doesnt seem like its much but the team is going to be loaded with (possible nhl caliber players now AND rnh) do you know what i mean? imho i think there is 9 teams battling for 2th-10th and gold is a lock for Canada.
