I think EJ, (ROR), Barrie, Elliott, Wilson, Siemans, and even Hejda look promising as a group over the next couple years.
I think if the Avs can land a couple good FA signings (Smid, Bozak, a pk forward or two, come to mind), this team is in good shape to start the year 2013-2014.

And on a side note, this team has shown enough fight even with all the injuries that I think we'll end up drafting between 7-12 this year. To me, Tank for Jones/Mac seems more like a dream now than a possibility.
Sad, isn't it? They are playing like they actually want to make the playoffs. As much as it would be great to see them in the playoffs, I just can't imagine they would last very long, especially if we don't fix our defense (whether EJ is back or not).

It is nice though to see them put up as much fight as they have against teams like the Preds.
