I don't no much about these players but Jagr, Lindros, Kovalev, Simon, Messier, Holik are all offensive players.
Markanen is ready for the NHL, one of the best backups out there.
Dunham is a very good goalie, and he is a quality starter who can take a team to the playoffs.
Blackburn is looking like he will be good future starter in the NHL.
DeVries is a solid defensive defensemen.
Mironov, Malakhov, Kasperitus, Poti, Leetch are all more offensive oriented. Kasper is physical. That D is not too bad, except the obvious fact that they aren't good defensively.
Nycholat, Tyutin are offensive in the minors.
Purinton, Jakopin are physical type guys, useful #7's...Their both big.
Bouchard has relatively no affect, he is average defensive...shouldn't be in top 6 of a good team.
Up front they have some solid defensive guys like Holik, Nedved, Messier, Lundmark.
Simon, Barnaby, Lacouture are physical type players.
Hlavac Lindros Jagr
Rucinsky Nedved Kovalev
Barnaby Lundmark Holik
Simon Messier Rheaume
I am sorry but if this team makes the playoffs, and half of their stars shine, I'd pick them to go far. They need a true #1 defensive d-man.
I can see them going after Luke Richardson type of guy.
