Great work; nice to have such a comprehensive list available.

There's no way that Buturlin is 22 and Hossa is 23; he was drafted the year before Hossa, and both were drafted in their first seasons of eligibility.

As for the left side being weak; it doesn't look so bad if Bulis is included there; Jan has played left wing for the majority of the past three seasons; it's safe to say he's a left winger. Begin had also spent at least half of his time on left wing with the Habs. Also; if we are to believe Savard when he says that Higgins will be a left winger at the pro level, the left wing isn't so bad.

Bulis
Dagenais/Zednik Zed has played a lot on left wing
Begin
Langdon
Kilger
Higgins
Hossa
Lambert

Not a horrible list IMO. I also have a sneaking feeling that Kastitsyn might be groomed to play left wing eventually on a top line with Ribeiro and Perezhogin, but that's two or three seasons away.

Upon further review: Hossa doesn't turn 23 until next October.
