It can take years for skilled young forwards to finally move up into primary offensive roles. Some players are ticketed for bigger things year after year. Here are several players who finally seem ready to escape that "almost-ready" category: Brayden Schenn, Philadelphia Flyers: He finally became a point-per-game player last season . . . in the AHL, where he scored 33 points in 33 games during the NHL lockout.

He didn't do anything absurd like trade Claude Giroux or try to get Alex Pietrangelo to sign an offer-sheet, but the Flyers were still very active this off-season and were the laughing stock of Twitter for a couple of days.
