Colorado looks like they're ready to take a big step as well, I like their group of forwards better than Edmonton's tbh...
Hands down a better group of forwards - but their major weakness right now is at D - they've failed to do anything to address the position other than acquire the underwhelming Erik Johnson and grab guys like Barrie and Elliott later on in the draft.

Their forwards are amazing though. Perfect balance. The 1-2-3 combination they get with Duchene-Mackinnnon-ROR is probably the best top-3 C's you'll see over the next 10-15 years in the league.

Even their wingers are effective - Landy leads the charge, and solid complements like McGinn, Parenteau, and Stastny (now a W) to help on each line.

They just need some D for God's sake.
