I will say that French hasn't had a real forward prospect that he "developed". I guess time will tell with Galiev who had a sub par season in Hershey and a decent season in Reading. A lot of the guys French has gotten were guys who were very close to being NHL ready.

The goalies could be the work of Prior and Kolzig. Kolzig attended at least one of the games this weekend and I'm pretty sure makes frequent stops in Hershey and Reading to work with Holtby (start of the year), Grubauer, Anderson, and Kostenko
Garrett Mitchell? Really like Mitchy and think he can compete for that 4th line spot next year, especially if Hendy's gone.
