I thought he should have a good shot at the team for 2014 until I realized the timeline and the fact that there hasn't been any NHL hockey this year. It really hurts his chances all around. Since HC loves their old boys club I can't even see him surpassing a guy like Eric Staal even if RNH is going a PPG clip for the first couple months of the 2013 season.
Richards, Crosby, Stamkos, Bergeron, Spezza, Tavares, Seguin, Couture, Thornton, Toews, Getzlaf, Skinner etc..
Pretty deep down the middle, depending how they build this team they'll have a lot to choose from. Heck is Ryan O'Reilley your Bergeron this time around? Going to be quite the team.
