They never had that chance due to the vets in front of them... not because they couldn't do it. Although I think we'd be hard pressed to move Martin at this point due to the amount of minutes he can play. Unless we're certain that Despres can play 20+ minutes a night... But it wouldn't bother me in the least to start with 2 rookies all during the regular season. We do need to get them icetime to see what they can do.
