I think Grachev will be in the NHL within two years, definitely, but I don't see him being able to reliably contribute in the top-six within that time span.

This team is severely lacking top-six talent (I don't consider Callahan, Avery, Drury, or Anisimov top-six talent right now) and guys who can be there (Kreider, Stepan, and Grachev) won't be there for a while. That's all.

agree with all of your points.

thats why i said top 9 not 6.

and ive long said this team has drafted the same kinda 2 way forwards for years.

the more recent picks show more offensive skill but are not ready yet.

we need skill. soon.
