I've said this many times and it still says true. Current core on a stanley cup team in 2-3 years withour pieces would be:

Kane - AA - Wheeler
Ladd - BB - Little
xx - CC - xx
Wright - Slater - xx

Enstrom - Byfuglien
Bogosian - Trouba
Stuart - Redmond

As you can see the problem is C. I think it's safe to say that Scheifele + Burmistrov can easily fill two of those but whether either of them succesfully and competently handle the 1C job is the real question. It's unfortunately unlikely, but if it happens Jets will be in a good place as the rest can be covered competently through combination of FA and farm. Question is: what do we do if Scheifele and Burmistrov are destined for 2/3C? Well anything could happen, or nothing... Unfortunately.

Defense I actually have no worries. Watching Bogosian play with Byfuglien and Redmond after Enstrom's injury I really think that he could be groomed to play his offside with Trouba, and as they develop, they can overtake Enstrom-Byfuglien for top pair.

Goaltending... Start praying.
