Obviously it's a big gamble with putting in so many young players, but I think they are all capable of producing at an acceptable level. Bortuzzo and Strait have been professional players for a number of seasons now, and should be able to transition to the NHL game. Despres has talent coming out of his ass, and Tangradi has shown he can at least play a checking line role up here with us.
The hardest part will be getting rid of Martin, Kennedy, and Lovejoy without bringing on any NHL contracts. If that doesn't happen then this plan will never work.
