Ericsson - 28
Smith - 23
Kindl - 25

And then Jaybo at 29 if we made the trade. Make the trade and allow Smith to slowly reach his potential. We're set at forward prospects. In goal we have Howard, Monster, and Mrazek who could challenge Howard down the road. The only spot we're weak at is D prospects which we could focus on in upcoming drafts.
I'd like to argue we're weak on defense. Ouellet, Sproul are obvious and I think that's due to being in the CHL they get noticed more, but Backman and Marchenko are two guys that I think are very good as well. I think all 4 have top 4 upside. Then you have Jensen who I feel could be a top 6 PMD, but I don't think with Detroit. Then quite a few guys who could be #6 guys, but to early to tell, Nedomlel, McKee, De Haas, Nicastro, and maybe a couple I'm forgetting. I think we are weak at scoring for center only.
