Completely agree. I know the game is changing, but I'm worried we will see guys take runs and cheapshots at some of our best prospects like Kadri and Gardiner. Marlies could definitley use some toughness.

Also...I know Eakins' job is to try and get what he feels is the best lineup, as he has to hold true to the players, but this is a developmental league. I understand its vital to surround the youngsters with good professionals that they can learn from, but feel we have a bit too many veteran non-prospects who are taking ice time from youngsters like Ross, McKegg, Devane etc. The key is to strike a good balance, IMO.
