Not to mention, it's to be expected that Callahan, Dubinsky, Anisimov, and Boyle will all be re signed. Throw in Prust, Zuccarello, Avery, and Gaborik, along with the entire pool of prospects, and the upcoming future selections we'll obtain starting next month, and I'm anxiously awaiting to see what Sather is going to do (as far as trades are concerned).

No way we can keep all of these young kids, who are either on the team, in the system, or will be picked in the up and coming drafts.
Those are the thoughts I think silently, but rearely express, but it looks like a puzzle.

If one looks at it strategically, one option is to err toward getting these guys in the lineup as soon as possible, and saying goodbye to the end-of-contract role players like Fedotenko and Prospal. Tactically that could lead to a subpar season or even missing the playoffs if the kids don't look like a sure thing. It will be interesting to see whether the kids force anyone's hand in camp, and which way Slats leans.
