Think about who our so-called young roster players are.
Helm 2005 pick
Abdelkader 2005 pick
Kindl 2005 pick
Howard 2003 pick
Ericsson 2002 pick

We're not developing players.
We're doing something very wrong with player development.

Since the 2006 draft, our picks have 370 games played. 205 are by Shawn Matthias.
If we are not developing NHL players the problem is not totally at NHL side. When Curt Fraser joined the Giffins, the prospect production level stalled and we have these Mursaks and Emmerton's here right now. I think Blashill will make a huge change back to those good days, when Danton Cole, Greg Ireland and Mike Stothers were Griffins head coaches.

Fraser is the biggest mistake from Holland. Not any of his current signings.
