JL likes steady guys so they won't be going anywhere soon. It's too bad, I was hoping when we got this team that they wouldn't hold onto these guys too long. These guys being all the expansion talent we got initially. The average age on this team is a little high for a fourth year team. Even DR has said that he would like to cut down on the abundance of older players. Hopefully, these young guys take there demotions in stride. Then when the time comes, they will have to take advantage of there chances.

I don't think many fans are expecting to cut 7 vets in favor of 7 rookies. But these guys times are done. Apparently one can never have enough "character players" on a team. I just wish we wouldn't have a half a team of character players still.
I agree with you 100%. I do support replacing stagnant vets, just dont understand why Wallin is regarded so high.
