BTW, how did that work out a few seasons ago when they brought in Adam Oates?
i completely agree, what good has "proven players" gotten us so far. Run with what works, and right now that is youth. I'm not saying not to improve when you can, but the key is to do just that- improve. These posts about getting these aged players back drive me nuts. Past their prime, injury prone. these guys arent even worth draft picks
