Quinn should be on the first line here, if Murray is still on the list.

Krebs, Cozens, Dahlin, Samuelsson, Power, Thompson, Jokiharju and Tuch are all younger than Subban.

We also have Levi, UPL, and Portillo who are all better than him

This post is purely made to put Kulich on the first line and the rest was not thought about. Just because the WJs

The first 3 lines of forwards are impressive. There's probably not a star there (savoie maybe), but there is very solid quality depth. The defense looks much weaker, but at least with dahlin, power, and Samuelsson already here- you are just left adding a couple players either by trade or free agency. And with Levi coming, you may have to find a vet backup (portillo is gone is my guess, and the kid they drafted this year is so raw that it's gonna be years before I have to remember his name). This is what a top 5 (actually probably higher) prospect system looks like.

...the rest was not thought about...You are correct, I did not put much effort making the line, just wanted to demonstrate how many prospects are in the pipe line.

The first 3 lines of forwards are impressive...Unlikely to have a top 10 scorer but as you said significant forward depth, but insignificant defensive depth.
First of all thank you all for commenting.
Normally a post that addresses a teams future players receives little or no comments, I will presume you are all excited about the future as I am.
If the truth be known, I put together this post when I saw the Sabres sign Tyson Kozak.
I do not want to get too excited about him, but he was a 7th round pick and improved his scoring from 11 pts in 18 games to 69 pts in 66 games.
This is the first time that I could fill out an Amerk line up with so many prospects.
Once Levi and Portillo sign contracts, this team will appear to be even better.
While it is true that it is unlikely any of the prospects will score 100 or more pts, there may be several pt/gm forwards among that group.
I did not put much thought into the line up, I guess I should have and it may have looked like this:
Kisakov-Savoie-Peterka
Bloom-Ostlund-Rosen
Murray-Kulich-Nadeau
Apparently the Sabre scouting staff was considering to move up from the 28th spot to improve their chances of getting Kulich as he was the next player on their draft chart.

Biggest issues with the sabres is as you said the lack of a 100 pt forward. But I think Cozens, Quinn, Peterka and Savoie could all score around a PPG easily if you wanted. They also have 0 RD depth. The LD depth is Elite but RD is very bad.
