Slightly above average at drafting and developing.

Cap space to keep the core of the team together.

Negatives:
Too much inexperience everywhere on the team, this includes the coaching.

The defense is terrible, aside from Johnson the rest of the defense is composed of third pairing guys. There is some help on the way in Siemens, Barrie, and Elliott, but even when they make the NHL they are still inexperienced and going to be making mistakes.

Management has not shown they are willing to spend money to improve the on ice situation, yet.
The interesting part is, Im pretty sure out of that young established core, I only see Landeskog and Varlamov still wearing an Avs jersey in about 5 to 10 years from now or maybe even sooner than that.
