    In terms of overall ceiling? or a 3yr window?

    I'm interested in your take on this, in terms of overall ceiling.

    Thanks!

    Smith - opportunity is the world
    Brannstrom - competition, Chabot is the man in Ott.
    Broberg - stud. the difference with him and Brann is going to be negligible

    Merkley - won't surprise me to see a DeAngelo type development curve. Be patient. 3yrs

    Alexeyev - more value in MC.
    Lundkvist

    Fabbro
    Jokijarju - both real cerebral types who I expect to become really boring 40pt Dmen. Those guys you never notice, but always find the score sheet. Won't be PP1 specialists for anyone.

    Niku - Rafferty -- much older. Rafferty intrigues me as a #2PP Dman moving forward
    Soderstrom - Juolevi - Not high on Soderstrom offensively, Juolevi could move up to Fabbro level if he can stay healthy and get his stride back.

    Pilut - think he's going to need a change of scenery to become much of anything.
