what does it take to make you guys happy...??
We lose with the young guys in and we need to make a move because we're losing...
We win with the young guys out and we should have had them in because they'll never develop without playing... just be thankful that we have one of the few goaltenders in the league who can literally steal a game on his own against a machine like Ottawa.
Here's the deal, with all the young guys in, more often than not we're going to get creamed... get used to it. If the young guys fail to get better, then fire CJ... but do they all really need to play 80games, would that even be good for them on a team destined to lose whether they play or not?? We're a.500 team if we play well all season; obviously that isn't going to happen with a young team. Maybe some time watching games and analyzing the play will help them learn to think the NHL game.
Also, i don't think that you'll see Gainey make any major trade moves until the deadline when he parts ways with some of the UFAs for picks or prospects.
This is the team... the yougn guys will stay in Hamilton and play lots there. Those that are good enough, or have to clear waivers will stay up but play less. in three years if we get outplayed that badly, i'll understand a WTF, but until then have some patience.
