The only problem is that there are still years on there. The fact of the matter is that the two year period means it's one more prospect who won't be on the big club. Like I previously said, it wouldn't be bad if those three were sent packing simply because we still have enough veteran players on this team who can provide leadership and guidance to our youngsters.

There have been times in the past when this team has held back on playing a player simply because of contractual issues. With those three gone, it opens up an entire line for our youngsters. It means that they'll get sufficient ice time, learn the game, yet not get too much ice time as to where it can come back and haunt the team or hurt the kids' confidence
