In the AHL they're depended on more. We had more AHL vets on the club last year to learn on. They've gotta learn to swim. If they don't then we can't depend on them to win the games for us in all situations in the NHL.

I've read about Hopkins trying to improve his face-offs this year. That's probably the important thing that he needs to do. That and fill out a little more.
Not how were they sheltered, how is it showing in your opinion? because they've been by far the best players on the ice
