To be honest, our prospects aren't much of a concern right now. We have 3 years to rebuild our system before we have to replace any impact players.
Ok our earlier point remains...
The next 8 years:
Richards = yes
Carter = yes
Giroux = will need another contract AKA more money
JVR = will need another contract AKA more money
The next 3-4 years:
Hartnell = will need another contract
Leino = will need another contract AKA more money
Briere = yes
Kimmo = will need another contract
Pronger = yes
Mez = yes
Coburn = will need another contract AKA more money
Where the hell are you getting this idea that this is possible? Where is this money coming from? When you have good players, they will get paid. It is critical to have young, cheap guys to replace some of these guys bc we can't afford them all forever.
Edit: Just an addition, I'm not doom and gloom by any means. I agree with the general sentiment. But at the moment we have a HORRENDOUS farm system. We can't allow that to be the case for much longer.
