The Wings are going to be stacked!

We're already seeing how effective the young guns can be at times. Now in the WJC Mantha is tearing it up. Mitch Callahan is having a lot of success this year in the AHL, here's to hoping it translates in the future to the NHL level. If he could be effective in the NHL, he'd be a WELCOME addition to the 4th line.

Here's some thoughts on what the line and d-pair combinations could be over the next 4 years:

That's a lot of in-house talent that could stick around for a long time and compete. Not many teams will be able to say that so much of their teams is drafted rather than free agent signings.

Are you willing to say Ken Holland doesn't know what he's doing? I'm not...
