Robak has his final year of junior, and he will need an AHL season atleast before he is in the NHL fray. Ellerby is still going to need another AHL season, though its not out of the realms of possibility that he cracks the NHL at some point this year. Garrison is in a similar position, but am i the only one who would happily take Seidenberg even if it meant less room for him? He is only a prospect (and an older one). Seidenberg is a solid Defenseman, and Garrison certaintly offers no upgrade now or a large one in the future.

Seidenberg is right now, better than all of these Defenseman bar maybe Kulikov. Forgive me if i take the solid NHL D over two D prospects right now, when if it becomes apparent that they are NHL ready, a move can easily be made to implement them into the line up.

You all assume Ballard, Allen, McCabe, Leopold will be here in 2010-11. Im pretty sure that won't be the case. Turnover is high, injuries happen, so i wouldn't be worried about stopping the rookies from ice time. They get it when they show they are capable of it.

The only predicament we have with our rookies is what to do with Kulikov. We may have a Alex Piet case here. Too good for the CHL but perhaps not NHL ready.
