I'm just curious. How many of these young guys will average 40 goals per season for the duration of their career, like Kovalchuk has for the 7 years before the last 3 months?
None. But event though they won't score 40 goals, they'll compete. If Dubinsky, Callahan, Anisimov, etc aren't scoring they're doing something else (competing, playing in their own end of the ice, you know, actually playing the game) as opposed to doing nothing. I'd rather have them than that locker room cancer with a contract that make Redden's, Drury's, and Gomez's look like great signings.

And I seriously doubt Kovalchuk touches 40 this year. If we had signed him this offseason and produced as he is producing now, how many people would be complaining now? He would be treated as the next contract in line to hamstring the franchise.
