Dubinsky - Anisimov - Callahan
Avery - Drury - Zuccarello
Boogaard - Boyle - Prust

Staal - Girardi
DZ - Rozy
Vtank - Sauer

Ever think a major factor as to why this team is looking like a TEAM this season? No major turnover.

Keep plugging holes with home grown players.

I think Kreider with his speed could do nasty things with Gaborik.
I wanted to make a bold statement about Rozi's value. We wouldn't be able to replace him, so losing him would weaken our team. We aren't so short on assets that we need to trade our upcoming FAs for anything we can get. Really, I feel we'd be silly to dump Rozi just to get a pick or 2. Rozi is worth more to our team than that.

I agree with plugging holes with youth, but only when they are ready to contribute. Look at Boyle - last year wasn't ready, this year he is. That's the way to do it. But don't force them into roles they can't fill yet.
