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?
What can be expected of the current group of players?
Not a playoff spot. A few glimpses, a handful of valiant efforts, a little promise of something, but ultimately, a lot of L's.
Which prospects are possibly ready for NHL-duty?
Larrsson looks NHL ready for a third-line role. If McNabb rebounds from his knee injury, he
be ready. He had a slow start last year, though. I expect the Grigorenko experiment to start again and him to be on the roster (whether he should be or not).Armia has a shot depending on how he transitions to NA.
Do you think Gerbe and Stafford can bounce back?
Stafford will probably pot 20-25 goals, but Gerbe's not an NHLer at this point.
Will Pysyk be a starter?
Can Weber pick it up where he left off last year?
I think he can and that he will. Ott being on the team helps, and I see Webs becoming more of a leader.
Do you see Larsson cracking the lineup?
70% yes at the start of the season. 100% yes by the end of it.
