Yet, 2013 could be remember for 2 things: The emergence of our first power forward since I don't know how many years. And maybe, just maybe, our next starting goalie permitting us to deal the present one in due time, getting THEN the other pieces needed to go far. But that's not short term. Then, there are also pieces in there that covers a lot of things, from defensive player to really talented forwards as well. Tons of depth in that 2013. Quality wise...I agree, 2007 and 2012...tough to beat.
Now... Combining our 2012 and 2013 drafts is what I feel will make us a contender for a good long while. The forwards drafted in the last 2 drafts and the d-men drafted in 2010 & 2011 should give us a solid foundation.
