Is it the start of the season yet? No, it isn't. In fact, it isn't even close. We still have over two months to go until the puck drops on the 2015-16 NHL season, meaning there's a lot of time for teams to make moves, and there's a lot of time to sit around and think about who's had a good offseason and who hasn't. Pretty much all of the interesting free agents are off the table now that we're heading into August, but as we saw the other day with the Canucks and Penguins, there's still a lot of time for teams to make moves and tweak their rosters. 

With that being said, after the jump I'm going to break down the good and the bad of the offseason in the Pacific Division (so far) and who might still be looking to make some more moves before the season starts.

Nearly every hockey fan has the basic understanding that the NHL is the best hockey league in the world and that to become an regular player in the league you need to be the best of the best. Combining this with the piling of recent evidence suggesting that the peak age of players is around the mid-20s, it starts to become apparent that fans in every fan base tend to be over-confident in the success of their AHL (and other) prospects.

It is important when studying prospects, and when wanting to increase the general understanding of the league, to establish a baseline of success for those in development leagues.  

Continue past the jump as we look into AHL success.
