Of course, guys like Byers and Korpikoski can flat out suck in camp, but I'd much rather have the best prospects play than these veterans. These guys can end up becoming not better than the guys we signed, but we should have confidence in them to be able to contribute to this team.

I'm glad to see someone else agrees with me.
Because they aren't going to just hand a starting job to prospects. These other players were brought in to create competition. Whoever loses will be sent down or traded. The same thing happened with Hutchinson last year. Staal won the job and Hutch was sent down.
