Bottom line is we have nothing in our so called great system that's gonna take us to the next level e.g. the level of excellence where they used to be pre 2009 Stanley Cup finals. This is getting frustrating as we can't bring in the help like they did in 2001 b/c of the cap and our prospects are just decent at best. Aside from Larkin there is no hope anymore!
Who knows though - these guys are still so young. Larkin, Mantha, Anthanasiou, are all 21 or under... Throw in our teenagers like Svechnikov, Saarijarvi or our 1st round pick this year and ask yourself can any of these guys be superstars in 4/5 years (when they will all be 25 or younger)? Such a long time from now, it certainly isn't out of the realm of possibility.
