Lysell, Lohrei, 1sts can get anyone available . Don’t have to be deep just need a a couple.
The real question is should they? They can’t afford to trade away the few valuable prospects for rentals for that very reason.
Outside of the prospect pool being shallow, it is, the rest of your take is pretty bad.
Boston has a long history of bringing in mediocre vets to block young players.
People had written off Zboril and Urho for the same reason you brought up, they had not been brought up an made an impact. Depth chart matters. Zboril was buried behind Chara, Krug, Grizz for a couple of years. You benching them? When Z and TK left Zboril took a spot and had some good moments and growing pains before getting hurt last year. This year was playing very well. His injury and Covid made calling up Urho a necessity, now he’s been playing 22m a night on the 1st pair and playing well. Both need a permanent spot in the lineup next year.
It’s about opportunity.
Steen forced his way not only to stay up but in the lineup when he got the chance. Same with Blidh.
Studnicka is the next one. Written off by many because it seems like he’s been around forever. He’s 22. College senior age. Less than 100 games in the AHL while averaging .79ppg there. If he was somewhere else he’d have a role. In Boston he has to wait.
2015 7 picks in first 3 rounds. 5 are in the NHL. Senyshyn, the only really bad pick, leading Prov in goals. JFK in Europe to be close to family. Were mistakes made, sure, they went off board and it cost them. A Donny trait for years to come. Had they taken 1 of the guys they passed on instead of Seny nobody would mention 2015 other than to say what a great draft it was for them. How often does a team pull 5 or 6 NHLers in one draft? I remember Edmonton having 11 picks in a draft and not one of them ever played in the NHL. Pretty much every team, every year, could have drafted better. It’s not a sure thing.

Him wanting out has nothing to do with talent. Nor does his relationship with the coach.
Last 2 months 16 games. 4g 4a. Not far off the production he had first 3 seasons. Playing well, hard, creating chances, going to net, playing d, even killing penalties.
It’s the lazy fan that looks past what he’s done and what he brings and purely looks at 10 months of dealing with concussion, depression, Covid 3 times, battling the coach, forced to play out of position, demoted after adding Hall and saying….that’s who he is. 🤷🏻♂️
