yeah, lets for one minute assume any of these guys are going to be more then bottom 6 players.....who are you kidding?

these guys are energy guys and are perfect in that role. their growth isnt going to be stunted playing in the NHL, it gets stunted rotting in the minors. look at all the players that spend more then 2-3 years in the AHL.....most simply never come close to their potential, and many more never even make it.

in the next 3-4 years, there is no way Beach, Hayes, Shaw, Danault, etc are top 6 players...no room for them and not their game....so whats your point with them playing in a position they will be playing in 2-3 years?
