    Good to see them making the grade. Dach likely stays unless issues resolved on owners wanting to reopen recently agreed to moa with nhlpa.
    Reichel, Teply and Saarela if injury doesn’t keep him out will at wjc also.

    Good to see other prospects improving their stock playing in Europe this fall. Hagel really playing well, Kurashev, Suter and Soderlund showing lots of promise too. Others like Chalupa, Galvas and Kayumov making themselves noticeable as well.

    Kurachev and I think Barratt did very well in world juniors the yr they were there. So those could be good. I like both a lot.

    We do very well with some 2nd round picks. Vlassic could be another. I see Mitch and Vlassic as good players in 5 yrs.

    Be interesting who is really good in 5 yrs from 2019.
