I give up.
You keep the veterans so you don't become Edmonton and the Islanders: teams building slowly thru the draft in the bottom five of the league for 5 years. Or like Pittsburgh did. As you can see by the reaction after 7 games, Flyers fans would never except a 5 year rebuild. You sign Bryz to cover for lapses by the young players. No team has ever won the cup without veterans either.
