One of the things you are just going to have to deal with is that this is going to be the norm. When you have the amount of prospects that we now have some of them are going to be shipped out because they CAN'T beat out the competition. Simple as that. Teddy couldn't win a top-9 let alone a top-6 spot and because of it is he on Tampa. Doesn't mean that he can't have a decent career just that it isn't going to be with us.

Honestly, name a single guy in the top-9 that you would want to replace with Teddy... Who? Richardson? Simmonds? Brown? Williams? Honestly... it's like you seem to think that we have unlimited minutes...
So better prepare yourselves because this going to happen again soon. Next camp we are going to have both Schenn and Loktionov fighting for one of the few possible forward positions. So what do you think is going to happen? Get used to it. This is what happens on good teams....

Just pathetic some of these arguments. How can you honestly say the coaching staff isn't good at development when nearly the whole team is players that we have developed? How you missed that we have one of the youngest cores in the whole NHL?
You don' have to replace a top 6 player......
With the right coach and gameplan we could roll 3 offensive lines and score a bunch.
If we would stop to mix stopper and scorer we would have a cool lineup.

Smyth - Kopitar - Williams
Frolov - Richardson - Brown
Modin- Purcell - Simmonds
Stoll - Handzus - Parse

That would be a hell of a lineup and a true contender
instead a 1st round slaughter victim

But that's just my opinion and the time will tell
But please don't cry for more scoring if we fail big time in Playoff
