How is it unfair to Stolarz? It just mentions there are doubts surrounding him, which is true, is it not? You said yourself he's far from a sure thing. And, yeah, not all other teams have goalies that are a sure thing, but take a look at their prospects and you'll see pretty much all teams have good goalies in their pool. We really have nothing. Stolarz is at least a couple of years away from the NHL and we don't have a backup yet (and certainly not one as good as other teams do).

Look at the context, he was talking about the Flyers needing elite scoring, not center depth. He just mentioned those two, because he felt they come closest to "elite scoring" in terms of our prospects. It'd be laughable to call even them "elite", though.

We are good in terms of defensive prospects, though, so that's good.
