As you point out, as I got into writing the prospect capsules I went back and looked over the list a couple of times and came to the same conclusion and that really framed my intro into the whole article. If things go right in the next couple of years, a miserable month on the ice might work out to be the best thing to happen to the franchise in the last decade.

Was thinking about the article last night as Jones assisted on Forsberg's first NHL goal and we saw the two of them celebrating together afterwards. Seems like just last season we were always complaining about not being in position to draft impact players like Forsberg and Jones. One bad season, one unhappy player, one GM going all in to make the playoffs, and we have ourselves two top prospects in the cupboard!
