Pumpkin I have to disagree with you here. After this year our system is pretty depleted at F. The only top prospects left in the minors are Pulk, mantha, AA, and nastisauk. On D we will have Oullett, Jensen, Sproul, Merchenko, De Haas-he is slipping, and Backman. McKee is also down a feel levels and may be a F in the end. Yes there are others that could still develop: Frk and Jarnkrok come to mind. But only 4 Forwards vs 6 Dman and we need twice as many F as D to have a team. Our stars at F as also much closer to the end of their careers than on D. We need 1 more F focused draft to reset.
Not even a mention of Janmark or Bertuzzi?
LW- Athanasiou, Bertuzzi
C- Jarnkrok, Janmark
RW- Mantha, Nastasiuk, Frk
That's a fairly solid group of forwards going forward considering how young they are.
