MB states that he wanted the young players to have major roles in their first season there (Dumont, Gallagher, Tinordi, Beaulieu) and if he had signed AHL players with experience, the team might do a lot better, but those young players wouldn't be learning as much..

There's no circus in Hamilton, how they are doing was expected by present management, and not because we don't have good prospects.

Pretty sure I'm not the only one who remembers MB saying this.
The "circus" word was used by DAChampion as an example to bash Bergevin.

We have some good prospects. We also have some prospects that will remain that......prospects.

And almost every one of those poorly performing prospects has been and will continue to be overrated my many fans on this board.
