Nylander, to me, is a continuation of the old way we were doing things

Chemistry is built by sharing a common experience. Playing together as a team, in Jrs, the minor leagues, does that. Bring in parts from all over the place doesn't work. Like the old chicken commercial, parts are parts.

Having said that though, almost everyone is going to be in the same boat. Those organizations that have some prospects that they have been developing I think have an advantage over those that have a thin prospect pool. I do think, and this should not come as a surprise, that everything hinges on where we pick in the draft. If we get crosby then I think it changes the way things are going to be done.
