Is it sad that I remember all those names? The point I was making also was that our farm system sucked. It did. Phoenix sucked and so did the other place we shared with the NYI. That's all changed with DL AND (I didn't mention any of this with Cowboy K) now we have the TIME to let these guys develop. There's no rush with any of them to make the big club and that speaks volumes. Even last year or the year before people were ready to dump Lewis but look at his strides. What if we had waited an extra year or two with Boyle, Moulson or Purcell? That's now what we can do with Hickey, Forbort, Teubert and others that need a few extra seasons in the AHL to really figure it out. It was talked about last year with the Detroit method of waiting for prospects to be 'overripe' and I like it. Oops, did I just give another reason NOT to fire DL. Don't tell
Man Midshipman, you need to stop riding Lombardi's jock.
