Everyone will be used to having Timonen to eat up the hard minutes and QB the power-play, and when he's gone there will undoubtedly be a drop-off while guys learn to play without him and the younger players step up to take his minutes.
Ok, thanks for clearing that up. We will never see eye to eye on this issue. You just want to tank, I prefer to see the team I root for have a chance night in and night out. I also prefer seeing our young players (Luke) learn from veteran players and see day in and day out what it takes to be successful in this league.
