does not matter of his age or if he was a Non-nhl'er. he was there and he did not play the last couple of games because he should not have been there.

ey yo!?!? Murray didn't play much, but he looked really good. Well, well suited to the big ice. Easily outclassed slower guys like Methot and Schenn.

I'd agree with Murray, but I was kinda thinking the opposite with Forsberg :O
I think he could still use a little developing, but I thought he was ready to play the big leagues; he's pretty complete as is.

Also, Wilson. He might be ready. Yak might be ready.

Dark horses, Koekkoek, Hertl, Pearson.

Wilson may be physically ready, but he is a long way from hockey ready.

No chance on Koekkoek, he was likely a two to three year project before his injury. Now he is back half a year of development, and will likely be drafted in the 20's, so the chance of making a decent playoff team is pretty much zero for any player. Short of a much higher pick acquired in a trade (Seguin, Couterier) I do not remember a first year player making a playoff team, although I am sure it must have happened.

Hertl is a 93 that helps, but its not often a Euro can come over like that as it takes time to deal with the difference in ice and language issues. There have been a few for sure, but they were also top 5 picks and from my viewings should have not been there anyways.

FF could perhaps be ready to play in a 3rd-4th line role, but it would be the absolute worst thing you could do to him for his growth as an offensive player.

He said at the combine he had a year on his deal with Leksand anyway.
