The forwards, and it might be a little premature on Noebels, might never amount to being more than excellent third liners with some offensive pop and Ghost might not be higher than 2nd pair defensmen. However, when 3 of those players were drafted after the 2nd round, that is very good scouting. Personally, I think Willcox develops into an NHL defensemen too making the pool even deeper.
No, we have a terrible prospects pool. We have a few players that are projects that could possibly amount to NHL talent, but the rest will most likely never develop into anything.
