Losing isn't the norm for these new kids, get these veterans as far away from these kids as possible.
The vets dont have to teach the kids anything.. They are to shelter them and let them grow at their own pace. Trading Hemsky+ Whitney IMO is stupid.
As for what have Hemsky\Horc\Gagner ever done question.. what have the kids done to show they will be any better then Gagner and Hemsky. Us fans have a very short memory and forget how highly we used to think about players who havent been lights out recently.
We were all projecting Gagner to be a PPG player when drafted and thought he would would be much more after the rookie season. Eberle and Pajaarvi are shiny toys now but could very well be the next Gagner + Cogliano..

Hemsky if healthy will remain > Eberle and Pajaarvi for the next 3 yrs.. Gagner will be more effective then RNH in the NHL for the net couple yrs aswell. Resigning both until Ebs and RNH are ready to be 70+ players would be the wise thing IMO.
