Well no denying we're very fortunate to have Geno, Sid, and Neal but the drop-off from Neal is pretty steep, and he's pretty much pure shooter (not going to deke anyone carrying the puck or make a seeing eye pass). Kunitz is solid, Sutter is solid (but not primarily offensive)... after that it's parts is parts. I mean we have some outstanding grinders *cough* (Cooke, Dupuis) but uh... you guys basically have 3 "second lines" and a 3rd line. So while our best guys are pretty well tops (although with Tarasenko who knows in a couple years), your overall depth top to bottom is much better.
Hopefully if our one solid F prospect pans out this year or next (Bennett), we'll at least have two "full" top lines.
