Hawks broke Leddy into NHL as a 20 yr old ,, Saad is on our team as 20 yr old rookie this year

I was expecting more of a youth push by Isles in recent years
I think a lot of us expected Donovan/Nino/Nelson to be in training camp, with Donovan at least making the isles on the 3rd pairing.

Snow didn't invite any of the three to camp, told Nino he wanted him playing 20+ mins a night, in all situations. I'm guessing he told Nelson and Donovan something similar.

Reinhart had a good 1st training camp. Strome had a quiet camp.
Kabanov missed most of the first half with cut tendons. De haan's missed almost all season with a shoulder injury.
