What I am saying is that there needs to be a mix of youth and vets. There needs to be a mix of grinders and skilled players. There needs to be a game plan and a coach and players who can and will execute that game plan.
good post Fletch and dead on.

Just because you play youth doesn't mean they will grow together and gel as a team or that they will pan out to be legit NHLer's even and NO team goes with a strickly Rookie lineup.
