I think they should sell what they can, as they should have done last year.

I also am hesitant to anoint Forsberg as a top six guy in the NHL the way some other people automatically do. He's an exciting prospect, no doubt, but this team only has one elite prospect, and that's Kuz. Forsberg has a long, long way to go to show that he can be part of what this team needs to get to the top.
Most rankings have Forsberg in or near the top 10 prospects, before of course the fact most of the ones above him are going to have to be taken off.

So when you see them redoing rankings, I guarantee every list will have Kuznetsov #1 and possibly most with Forsberg #3.
