I'd be happy picking up a dman like Murray in the top 5. I'm not sure how realistic that is though. We did just finish last twice in a row, but our prospects pretty much all look much better. Hall is going to be a difference maker, same with Eberle. If Dubnyk can do OK as a #1 then I don't think we finish very low. Probably won't make the playoffs or anything, I just don't think we're going to be a basement team.
I still want to see a few guys play against actual NHL players, but guys like Hartikainen, Lander and Petry look NHL ready. RNH is probably ready, but we need to see him play against NHL players. We've got the talent, got some decent role players and we finally have strong internal competition. So I don't think we're a lock to pick in the top 5, but it could totally happen.
