Frankly I'd like to see something done about Koivu. He's not acting like a captain in the media, not playing as well as he did two years ago, and the locker room is a complete disaster. That needs to be addressed.
The key is along the lines with what you're saying though, they had kids in the lineup rather than had a lineup made of kids. Don't forget that those prominent Chicago kids were 1st and 3rd overall draft picks. Leave some spots open for kids to try earn, but don't put them in the lineup for the sake of putting them in the lineup.
