Do people realize that Dowd wears an A, He is a leader, has speed, will do anything that LeMaaire asks of him. He is certiny not flashy but lets just lose Jimmy and Darby. We will still have a solid checking center in.. well there is.. oh yeah bring up Wallin and Foy. lots more offense now, yeah. But wait our defense is getting worse and we are losing more face offs lately. And the kids are looking frusterated in the locker romm... i know lets look to the guys that one a cup and some veteran forwards. Walz got hurt, why. He had to double shift against Detroit, Toronto, Colorado, Dallas because we have one else on our team that can win a face off and play D. who else can we play at center, well give PM increased playing time he is what 19 now, ready to be a man by hockey standards. I ll stop now.

I now those two are not gods, They are actually just OK. They provide a role. They do their job well. They take loads of pressure of the youngsters, they do all the little things that u can not exept guys like PM, Schultz to even know about on and off the ice. This is a team game, we have great chemisitry going right now. Take away a vet or two and bring in a kid. Lets not over haul here. Dowd, Darby, Antii, Muckalt, Bombadir, Marshall will be gone in a year or two. Foy, Wanvig, Wallin Veilliex will still be there. Honestly has Wanvig or Vellieux inpressed you from what did when they got called up. If i remember Wanvig was an early cut but didnt Vellieux have a great pre season last year almost made the team, and wow he really tore it up with that call up, right? We are not hurting the kids by making them work harder and earn a spot and earn respect.
