Even if that's what they become, that means they have become contributing NHL'ers who we didn't have to pay over the table for in free agency.

That's still a win, in the books of most. A big part of this franchise's problems is overpaying for guys to fill these spots through free agency. I would be ecstatic if we ended that trend.
