The article title is "No Subban, Pacioretty, or Desharnais", implying the Bulldogs suck due to a dearth of offensive impact players.

Sort of. You can argue Brendan Gallagher would be on the level those 3 were when they helped Hamilton, but he was promoted to the Canadiens mid season.

I also disagree with the cynicism concerning Tinordi and Beaulieu. He said we'll be lucky if they become top-4 dmen. Give them time... As an example, Tomas Plekanec played 233 games in the AHL. Or, if you prefer, Niklas Kronwall played three full seasons in the SEL after being drafted, and then 102 games in the AHL.
