    Johnson will be the QB of the Jackets PP for years to come, not Klesla. He makes excellent passes and delivers a good low, hard shot net for easy tips. Feeding the puck to Nash and Zherdev will amass some points. He'll probably start off in the AHL then be the first defenseman called up due to injury, if he doesn't make the squad out of the camp.

    I think he can be a 30+ point player in a few years.

    danny richmond is so underrated! seen him play a few times...SMART player. Never seen him do a dumb thing with the puck....always seems to know just how long to hold it and where to put it! one of my favorite players!

    Rosario Ruggeri should play for the Phantoms next season. Weinrich/Ragnarsson type of defenseman.

    Johan Fransson is pegged as a future #1 by Elite prospects.com. He has exceptional offensive awareness to go with an impressive skillset. Likely a potential first unit PP QB, perhaps capable of points between the 35/50 point range..

    Janne Niskala's one-touch puck handling which he uses sometimes might be very interesting to see in the NHL some day...

    Smid has the potential to pot 35-45 points. His game is based on smooth skating and positioning, similar to Mattias Ohlund.

    Neither Lynch or Woywitka look to be strong offensively in the NHL. Both look to be above average in their own end of the rink, but average on the offence.

    The first NHL goal Zherdev scored after Johnson's assist.
    The first NHL assist Johnson got on Zherdev's goal.
    You can name anyone in the world, but those two guys are already producing in the NHL.

    I would say Woywitka is pretty strong defensively and Lynch isn't that far off. Offensively, I agree with your assessment. Neither will likely ever break 35 points, although if I had to bet on one of them I would say Woywitka has slightly more offensive potential.

    I see him quite in the same range, like 30-35 points. Hopefully he won't turn in Tverdosvky v1.1 but for what I've read he's quite different from good ol' Oleg
