In getting that 20 yr old defenseman to replace Weber I see the Rockets moving 1 of Westblom or Yeomans, prolly Westblom..
Darzins has learned to play more physical and defensive, next year he will open up his natural offensive capibillties. Lauris has been injuried a couple of times this year because he wasn't tough enough, he is tougher now. Rockets don't like to take up two spots (euro and overage) but for Darzins they will make a exception.
If they move anyone it will be Yeomans, Westblom is as good and will be a better goalie in the future. Kris is a year younger also which means alot in junior hockey.
