Smith should've been playing his rookie season last year, then Nyquist this year, then Tatar and Andersson and maybe Jarnkrok next year, and so-on and so-on. But instead, we're left with all these prospects ready for the NHL but stuck in line behind the Vets AND the other prospects who have been waiting even longer.

KH's development philosophy has left this team in a spot where we are likely going to have a down year because he's forced to bring up all the kids at once, instead of one or two every year.
I give up.
