Given that the only other overager will be Bodie (I think) and the vast majority of this team will be back next year as 19 year olds I think it is worth it. I expect Darzins to play a big role with the club next year and do better offensively now that he has adjusted to North American hockey.

In getting that 20 yr old defenseman to replace Weber I see the Rockets moving 1 of Westblom or Yeomans, prolly Westblom. He will not want to be backup again and since he is a year younger he would get a little more than Yeomans. His value will also be be high right now after a good season, and the way he played off the bench against Brandon.
