Do you think Gerbe and Stafford can bounce back, will Pysyk be a starter, can Weber pick it up where he left off last year, do you see Larsson cracking the lineup? What kind of improvements can be expected from within the organisation, just by developing current skaters?
I think Gerbe's due to have a breakout, 60-70 point season. In Rochester.
I think Weber will continue to grow into a very solid 5-6 with penalty kill specialties.
I think Stafford should look to have a bounce back season, or get dealt at the deadline. I'd trade him now, but with Vanek likely heading, we need atleast some NHL-caliber bodies.
I think Pysyk will continue to grow, and find himself in our top-4 by season's end.
I think Larsson will start in Buffalo this year, when they don't address the need for a 3rd-line center in free agency.
