Condra-Turris-Silfverberg
Zibanejad-Da Costa-Alfredsson
Daugavins-Smith-Neil
Dziurzynski-Grant-O'Brien
Greening

Gonchar-Lundin
Methot-Gryba
Phillips-Wiercioch
Benoit-Borowiecki

Looking at this lineup, I get the feeling the rest of the season's going to be very interesting. And depressing.
IF you were expecting the Cup this year, I understand.

From my point of view, this is really good news. Injuries still suck but the fact that we are "manufacturing" so many NHL players is really encouraging and tesitify that our scouting, drafting and development programs are awesome.

I consider NHL players from now on (started last year) :

Mika Zibanejad
Jakob Silfverberg
Stephane Da Costa
Patrick Wiercioch
Erik Condra
Zack Smith
Jim O'Brien
Colin Greening

And soon Derek Grant

Remains to be seen :

Eric Gryba
Mark Borowiecki
David Dziurzynski

Daugavins and Benoit are stop gaps IMO. Won't be NHL players for long (but who knows? Derek Smith is in the NHL now)

They weren't kidding about a rebuild.
