I dont think its any secret that a lot of us armchair GM's are cooling on KH's recent lack of activity in the management area. The way to do it, is to fold one or two of the younger guys in over the course of a few months, I know its much tougher during a shortened year, but if you only do it for a certain time frame, the vets should be able to cover for them. The younger guys need to see how quickly plays happen at the upper level, see how defenses set up, read and react. Thats part of the process. The way the Wings have been doing it for the last ten or so years, seems like they value known vets in the twilight of their careers and it has out prospects languishing until they are either too used to the lower level play or they move on to other teams who are willing to give them a shot.
