While I think the potential is there, I don't see any use in rushing these guys. I would rather see them in just enough games next year to keep their rookie status, return to Hamilton to win the AHL and get that experience, and then have both as candidates for rookie of the year two years from now. With our forwards we have no need to rush these guys into a starting position with the big club. That gives CJ and BG extra time to deal with the forward log jam and make a more educated risk on who to move to make room for them on a more permanent basis. We're becoming such a young team overall that we can be patient.
