Con: the competition will get stiffer and stiffer as the season goes on, and I have some doubt they won't be able to follow the parade and wil be stucked (at least Galchenyuk) at NHL level. The Habs will then have lost one year of the entry contract on him. I just hope they won'ty burn any of them like they did with Latendresse and almost did with Price.
I think everyone expects the con part at some point. It's pretty rare that rookies can contribute all season long. They'll probably have a drought at some point. I expect teams like Flyers and Bruins go after this line. Sure they'll have some trouble, it's part of the learning curve. The way they are used though, I don't think it'll burn them out. And besides, we don't really have better options to put on their line anyways. I think it'll be fine.
