I think your missing the whole point of what is meant by competition for spots on the roster.!!!
What is the difference of having Moore and Devereaux signed and Mitchell competing with them for a spot and then cutting/sending them to the Marlies if he beats them out, verses not having them signed at all? .. At the end of the day they're not on the team and its the GM and coach concern who gets cut. If Mitchell proves worthy of a spot then that is what will happen.
You seem to want to give Mitchell and other youngsters White or Kronwall etc a free ride for a roster spot without earning it by simply removing all the competition factor
the battles for jobs even begin.
"Play the kids" was your position for a long time and the veterans were roster pluggers. Now they are there to create competition which was the right answer all along.
