There were some of us who were skeptical that our rookies could come in and pick up where our favorite vets left off. I for one was one of them but I drew up a little comparison to look at.

Tony Amonte 38GP 10G 11A 21pts +2
Jeremy Roenick 32GP 6G 7A 13pts -2
Mark Recchi 36GP 11G 19A 30pts -18
John LeClair 27GP 6G 11A 17pts -9

Total: .248 goals per game, .609 points per game

Jeff Carter 36GP 8G 11A 19pts +6
Mike Richards 34GP 5G 14A 19pts +10
R.J. Umberger 28GP 6G 8A 14pts +6
Ben Eager 13GP 2G 4A 6pts +3

Total: .189 goals per game, .523 points per game

Was the ever so slight decrease in offensive potential, and temporary loss of team identity worth the savings in cap space?
