Sure it could. I don't think anyone was really thinking this was "our year" anyways.
The rookies get another season of seasoning in their respective leagues and/or a loaded AHL. A lot of people were clamoring for this as it was.
Guys like Ennis get a full season of center play under his belt without the pressure of being forced into a Top 6 center position in the NHL.
A number of our older guys come back in their prime and depending on how signings go, we likely free up some cap and give the talented young'uns like McNabb a legit shot at making the team full-time.
Another draft worth of talent in the organization.
I guess my only concern comes in those players that are taking a full season off and what kind of shape they come back in (looking at you Stafford).
