They did fine with Hall, RNH and Yakupov and getting Eberle and Klefbom where they got them was extremely lucky. The core isn't the problem, it's the rest of the roster that needs work and it would be nice if some of the lower round picks start becoming fixtures on the big club namely Lander, Pitlick, Marincin and Hartikainen whom i still have hopes for.
What's your thoughts on a core stylized after Chicago/PIT/Eastern Conference teams playing in a division like the Pacific next year?

Spectacular group of players - I just don't see them as well-suited for a division where scoring is limited and physical play and hitting is the norm.
