Well just about everyone will look rushed when you look at the disaster of a season we just had. I don't know if I would say players were rushed, if you look back to last year, things were looking great. Kostitsyn looks good on the top line, the younger Kostitsyn makes a nice debut and puts up good numbers in the playoffs, Price shines after Huet gets traded, O'B looks solid, Chipchura does ok puts up 11 pts in 36 games on the 4th line, Higgins pots 27, Pleks breaks out puts up big numbers.

Then a year later, Kostitsyns struggle, one gets sent to Hamilton for a spell the other ends the season on a massive slump, Higgins pots only 12 goals has injury problems, Pleks production drops 30 pts, O'B goes from decent looking bottom pairing prospect to getting sent back to Hamilton and now some fans wouldn't want him to fill the water bottles, Price looks like crap in the 2nd half struggles to get back on track, etc....
