These are really disappointing signings compared to what other teams have done. If we want to see the team have a fighting chance they need to surround the rookies with some solid veterans. Hamilton lacks the top-end youth from the NHL the other organizations have sent down, and the veteran presence other teams have. With an NHL lock-out I would imagine the free-agents still out there would love to get a paycheck since they are not good enough to find spots in the European leagues with all the NHLers signing there.

As a comparison the Marlies have got Aucoin, Zigomanis,Ranger, Hamilton, Koska and Fraser as veterans while Hamilton has St. Denis and Hagel. As it is now Hamilton is the youngest team in the AHL according to Elite Prospects.
