This is a toughie, because after the top three, it's very much debatable.

Went with Saros, maybe the best Finnish goalie prospect since Rask.

Saros has the highest ceiling, as a possible #1 goalie, and, importantly, has been playing for over a year since being drafted and has done nothing to lower expectations(and in fact has actually raised them).

unless Diaby's ceiling is top pair D, I have to give Saros the edge.

Sissons is almost NHL ready but looks to be slotted for a bottom 6 role, or am I mistaken?

so, Im saying Saros

I think Sissons could be Mike Fisher 2.0

Lots of great choices here. It's between Salomaki and Saros for me. Hard to compare goalies and skaters, but I'll go with Salomaki. I also love Sissons, Leipsic, and Diaby. Kamenev seems to be highly hyped, but I don't know enough about him yet.

Kamanev will play in the NHL as a top 9 guy. Salomaki is just another boring, redundant and dare I say..Useless Finnish Taylor Beck

I'm all for Jettisoning any Trotzian 2 way fwd from the previous era

Thats silly. Every team needs at least 4 good two way forwards for the PK.

Beck would probably make the team this year if Poile wasnt under the gun to get back to the playoffs, but instead we are going sacrifice a year of development of Beck, Watson and probably Sissons. if we make the playoffs this coming season and the pressure is off, I expect us to let all of the one year contract guys go(except maybe Ribs)

whether it will be too late for Beck and Watson by then remains to be seen..

Injuries will happen though.

I see the order for call ups like this:

1. Forsberg
2. Sissons
3. Watson
4. Beck

Now the thing to watch is how good Leipsic and Aberg do in the AHL this year. If one of them can produce from the get go, that list will quickly change. It sucks for the players, but looking at Poile's position, its a good problem to have.

I think most of these guys will get their chance next season, unfortunately, because, like you said, most of the older guys' contracts will be up. (YAY)
