We have very little impact forward talent. Probably none actually. Unless you count Couturier and Schenn, but even that isn't shaking out as hoped.
Our D prospects aren't bad, but it's more of the same of what we already have. No elite talent most likely and nobody that would make a massive difference over what our current D roster looks like. In goal we have Stolarz.
That's about the extent of the kids.
Your looking TOO far.
Stand back and look, the forwards ON THE TEAM.
Simmonds/Voracek/Giroux/Schenn/Courturier/Read. 6 guys that are 26 or younger. Then add in Laughon/Cousins/McGinn/Straka/Rinaldo/Raffl, still very young player.
Defense is where its falling apart seriously, the talent in the prospect pool is getting better, but its FAR off. Right now you only have Schenn & Gus (both benched, lol) Then you have Alt & Lauridson down in the AHL, Alt may project to be a top 4, Lauridson, probably no better than a 6/7. Ghost/Morin/Hagg have HUGE upsides, but time will tell and only 1 may be on the team next year, and thats a big if.
Again, this team is massively flawed, I'm not saying it isn't, but everybody wants a move to get younger, well this team is pretty friggin young already for the most part and in areas where its not, Holmgren is patiently waiting for those guys to come up.
