No dude. This team has 5 players with high ceilings. Do not confuse high ceiling with talent.

Yak, hall Rnh, Eberle, and Perron. I will not put Schultz on that list since he can't play in his own zone and is basically a worst version of dennis wideman at this point.

that is five players on the roster and 2 in the minors. Of those 5 players only eberle and hall have produced at an all star level, RNH has never been able to translate his production into Even strength play and Yak is as raw as it gets.

Also only RNH has the potential to make those around him better and he has yet to show that.
