Yeah but of those, One was the top goalie, one a top 4 defenseman, one a top 6 forward who scored 30 goals, and Moore, Betts and Hollweg all developed into significant roles with the club.

That's not bad for the first year of a rebuild especially when you consider that guys like Kondratiev, Pock, Liffiton and Immonen were given looks as well.

Next year there will be even more, a lot of the players that will be key parts of the rebuild weren't ready or were still very young this season. Next year you've got Staal, Baranka, Immonen, Helminen and Dawes who are going to get longer looks in camp.

That's not bad at all.
