Exactly. Dress Despres/Bort and give them time to show us what they can do. If Despres can't get it done, either trade him, or send him back to WBS and call up Morrow or Dumoulin to show us what they can do.

We have all these prospects, and we absolutely must give them a chance to show us what they can do. We lost Strait who's now playing 17 min a night in Long Island, and doing quite well. We can't afford to let others get to that same position - which we will if we never give them a chance.
