Plus it helps getting used to a smaller rink and a more physical style of play.

Please don't point out the Peter Forsberg's of the world. I'm talking the mere mortal kind of players.
I don't think you should have the expectations of Wennberg being a number 1 center. He will most likely be a smart 2-way 50-60 point 2nd line center. I have much more hope for Johansen to solidify our center of the future position.
We do own enviable depth in our prospect pool but much like our current team no real superstar talent(Murray is on his way though). Our D and goaltending should be great for a long time but our forwards are going to be pretty similar to what we have. Lots of balanced scoring, lots of heart and physical play, never win with skill alone.
