How are the Amerks fans feeling about the forward group after watching the prospect challenge?

Kozak, Kisakov, Rousek, Rosen, Kulich and Cederqvist all have had some really nice moments.  Add them to Mersch, Murray, Biro, Weissbach, Malone and possibly Bjork and Sheahan and you have a really nice blend of new players, veterans and mid level prospects.

If UPL & Subban can give them reasonable or better goaltending they should be alright.

The big question is can the D actually help the G's keep the puck out of the net?

Games should be fun as the Amerks should be high scoring & their opponents might be as well.

It's a nice blend for sure.

The Americans might be must watch. I'll probably watch anyways tbh.

It will all come down to the vets signed for the Amerks. 

Mersch, Murray, Biro and Malone are back up front, along with Prow on D.

Subban in net and the four D - Pilut, Priskie, Clague and Davies - are the big veteran adds.

Super talented forward group. If Sheahan ends up in Rochester, that would be huge for them defensively. I think they need a good, defensively responsible veteran like him to balance out the rookies. 
 

Defense looks improved. Honestly UPL will likely be the weak link of the team. Subban will likely be much better, but he’ll get less games in. 
 

The AHL is tough to predict, but the Amerks look good. And I don’t feel any of their divisional rivals got much better. Utica especially lost a lot from last year.

Somebody needs to buy UPL & Subban copies of Eric Carmen's "All By Myself."  Horrible song, but appropriate because in games, they will be.

Call it a training year for the defenceman to learn, um, defence?

Tischke isn't as much of a puck mover as the others, but he's not exactly a solid defensive defenseman either.  Guess he's their "stay at home" guy.

Good luck with that Ukka & Malcolm.  You'll need it.

Tischke is the muscle. He’s fine as an AHL 6, IMO. And Laaksonen is serviceable as a 5. Think of them as Mike Weber and Jason Woolley.

Priskie Clague and Davies should be legit top 4 AHL D. Sure they’ll lean to the O side, but they’re all potentially better both ways than Ethan Prow who was the #1 last year after Mule and Fitzy got called up, and will be the other guy in the top 4.

If Pilut gets sent down, the D could be very good. 

Of course injuries will change that.

I agree that a steady guy like Alt would be a good addition.

I would disagree. Tischke may have become their steadiest defenseman by the end of last season.
