You really need a buy-in from both ends, without Richards and Carter pulling their weight Timonen and Pornger are useless to the team outside of their skills. It is one of the things that had me concerned with how last years team evolved.

Once Stevens was gone I feared that they may resent seeing Stevens go and a guy like Pronger call them out for being young. Instead with the help of Laviolette they have come back this year and are taking the necessary steps to be good, young players in the NHL.
