We do want do see youth this year, that's true. But the fact is we do not necessarily want them in 1st liner roles yet (speaking for myself). Not too long Marcel was considered as a third liner in development who was close to being sent down to Hamilton. Now people want him to be a legitimate 1st liner. Is that what you call pressure? I think so. What scares me is people saying Marcel will still having 1st line ice time when Saku comes back. People are so excited about this line doing great together they forget it could be even better IF ONLY we let guys like Bulis prove so and won't let Koivu take his spot. That was my point.
