I do believe if Higgins, Komisarek and Plekanec are brought up, that they would develop properly. There's some good leaders on the roster right now, they're just overshadowed by the many lazy players on the club.
You think that we could ice such a line up right now ?

Ryder-Koivu-Zednik
Hossa-Ribeiro-Plekanec
Bulis-Higgins-Dackell
Begin-Kilger-Ward

Sourray-Komisarek
Markov-Rivet
Hainsey-Brisebois

Maybe...

EDIT : assuming that we would be able to drop a lot of vets. This was just for argument's sake. I would like to see such a line up but it's not realistic to dream about this at this point.
