Price, Subban, Galchenyuk, Max, Beaulieu, Markov, Tinordi

vs

Kessel, Phaneuf, JVR, Reily, Kadri, Lupul, Gardner

If Reimer were to turn into a good starter, are we that much better?

We've got three guys who we hope will be considered top end talent. Beyond that we've got Max and some prospects. The blueline looks like it will be okay but up front? It's pretty thin for us.

Its awesome that we finally have some high end talent and that's truly exciting but I'm not sure that we're there yet. I'd like to have a lot more talent and size on the forwards.
Do you think TT and company will be focusing on forwards at the draft? With 4 picks in the top 2 rounds, we should be able to pick up some nice complementary pieces (Top6) and depending where we finish possibly some Elite talent. Just how far does the elite talent go in the first round? Also, we could amass even more picks if we trade some of our struggling vets.
