as it was for Chicago.

however, a lot of their future bottom 6 regulars... Lander, Pitlick, Paajarvi, Reider, Hartikainen... are receiving extensive seasoning in the AHL... I think they're taking their sweet time with these guys and will only bring a few of them up once they know they're just a piece or two short, ready for a push. Their scoring up front should be set for several years now... that's why they've been drafting crash and bang players in the past couple drafts to give them grit for the foreseeable future.

Jones, Smyth, Horcoff and whoever else, if they're still around, will be coming dirt cheap.
