Those Panthers I've named are not "household" names but if you do some digging you'll see that they are all very good players with size, heart, grit and character. Bjugstad has been compared to a Jordan Staal/Eric Staal hybrid and will be a huge #2 centerman who can play in all situations. Jonatan Drouin has incredible hands and projects to be a 35-40 goal scorer in the NHL. Howden is a big, versatile winger who is great on the PK and plays similar to Laich. Gudbranson is a big, character defenseman who can log big minutes, hit and fight when needed.... he's like Jovanovski-light. The 1st rounder next year is also a top asset to either stash or trade.

The best players don't win, the best team does. I'm sorry, I don't ever see an Ovechkin-lead Caps team winning the Cup but I could see Backstrom leading a team there.
