This.

Our team is short a top 6 forward right now, and I don't see any of our prospects (maybe Jensen?) being sure shot top 6 forwards going forward. We have a few that look good (Schroeder and Kassian) but both have warts in their game that could prevent them from taking that step. Outside of those 3 we really have no one. Who's going to lead this team in the future? One of the three that you mention would be huge for this organization (at least until we screw it up by constantly sending them back to juniors, then throwing them to the Wolves for a few years and stunting their development).
