What veterans on this team are capable of teaching any youngsters anything? We have the worst veteran core in the league. There is a reason we finished 30th, and the first place to look is at the guys earning the big bucks while getting outplayed on a nightly basis.
Based on what I've seen, Taylor Hall, Paajarvi, and Eberle could teach the garbage veterans on this team far more than they could learn from them.
the point i was making was WE NEED veterans to teach the young guys we dont need another small young guy that has potential to be a good player but is not yet developed and still needs to be taught.
we dont have the vets to teach the young guys and that is a problem but we have lots of small young guys looking for guidence who are cheap and have potential.
what we need is a D minded botom 6 guy that has some size and faceoff ability and who is a vet that still has lots left in the tank.
