I'll give you speed, Spezza, and Karlsson.
Silfverberg and Zibanejad are 60 point guys AT BEST. All I hear is how great they're going to be. I don't see it. They are second liners. Really don't see a lot of difference between them and Hagelin and Kreider, other than MacLean lets his guys play without a dog training collar around their necks.
I wish we had all that speed too, because pressure is much easier with speed. However, I just don't believe speed necessarily = hockey talent.
