Another thing to consider... all three will be third year pros this season. If they don't get a reasonable shot at the big club, how many will be back the following year? Baranka put in his three years, didn't think he got or would get a real shot, so he left for Russia. How many years will Korpikoski want to slog away in the AHL when he could make twice the money playing at home?

IMHO, it's sink or swim time for these three. They've done everything the organization has asked of them and shown significant improvement over their two years in Hartford. If they each don't get more than a handful of games with the big club next season, I won't blame them for believing the opportunity will never come and looking elsewhere.
