Visnovsky - MacDonald
deHaan - Carkner

Not great, but not nearly as thin as it looks right now. Kind of bad luck on both accounts.
A normal team would have erased deHaan's name off the prospect chart after his last (though doubtfully the last) injury. Streit's already inconsistent and getting older... Again, if this was a normal team they would have addressed it this summer via trade, and a normal club would be forced to address it this summer.

I see this summer as a watershed moment, either Wang is a man of his word, Garth scores a solid win, the club reveals that it really was waiting for the best moment to load both barrels and fire... or they are corrupt vampires from the bogs of hell bent on sucking our hearts out with a Milwaukee drill and two swizzel straws.
