Just curious, what do you see in Nash and Welsh that make you think they are "sure fire" NHLrs over some of the other guys. Welsh will be 25 shortly and Nash will be 24 so they aren't exactly "young" prospects. I would love for them to be able to be capable NHLrs (even if it's 3rd or 4th line), but right now, they aren't even the best players on their AHL team by a long shot. In fairness to Welsh, he's in his 1st professional year and has improved as the season has progressed, but was curious what you saw in them that makes you think they stand out from the crowd.
