Well at some point they arent going to be young players anymore. At some point they are going to be 24-27 year olds. At some point you have to take a shot at the playoffs. You cant be in rebuild/developing mode forever.
Sauer, Mcdonagh, MDZ, and Gilroy have just above 1 year of experince or limited experience in their NHL careers. Should we scrap them cause we should have vets playing in the playoffs instead of playing with who got us here?

What have Kaberle, McCabe, and the other cast of rental dmen done the past couple years in the playoffs? Oh wait, they haven't played in the playoffs either.

Let the kids play, lets see what we have.

EDIT: Those young players when they 24-27 will now have playoff games under their belt if you play them right now. Staal and Girardi will lead them since they got those games under their belt when they were in the same age group as the D we currently have. Funny how that works, isn't it?
