I guess so. The vast majority of our "prospects" are really way too old to be prospects. Welsh and Sanguinetti will turn 25 during this season (aka Jordan Staal's age). Nash, Boychuk, and Dalpe turn 24 (aka Brandon Sutter's age).
You can't expect anything in terms of top 6/top 4 play out of these guys, they're now in the stage where they have to earn their jobs like any other journeyman player.
Bowman and Welsh have one way deals next year, so clearly they've proven themselves to the organization. Bowman has great two way play and Welsh has size and is a natural center. They're two really good bottom 6 players of the future.
No point in being excited about Charlotte. Faulk, Skinner, and Ryan Murphy are our potential future all stars. We'll see what happens with Victor Rask.
