I think that's a good analysis.

Giroux is a guy I thought was deserving as well. Add Immonen, Baranka, maybe Lampman. Honestly, if they got a 60 game look and it worked out as well as it did for Hossa, can't say I'd be disappointed, even if it didn't really "work out" in the grand scheme of things. It would just be good to see more of the prospects pushed all the way though the development ladder, and I think it would be good for the morale of the people in it as well.
