So that's the apologists line is it? The kids will save us? It shouldn't be forgotten we JUST scraped into the playoffs and we'll be losing Filppula and possibly Cleary/Bertuzzi/Sammy.
Expecting all the rookies to have breakout seasons to compensate is silly.
Nah. But to say that the team is regressing with all these promising youngsters in the pipeline isn't what I would say. I like that Holland isn't interested in overpaying free agents and get handcuffed by the cap but wants to build the team slowly and surely through the draft to make sure that they stay competitive for years to come.
