I don't see them as mutually exclusive. I don't care who plays in this lineup this isn't a playoff team because of the defense. So if the kids get more minutes and an opportunity to learn as they go great. I just don't think relying on the vets is going to be enough. You don't want to hear the refrain 2 more years, well at least this team has a direction now. The last four years have been flat out rudderless.
Quite frankly no one has called them out but Eriksson-Roy-Ryder has been a major disappointment. I'm ready for Ryder to go. He's made some nice plays but he's not the future of this club and a good return would be very helpful. It also makes way for Reilly or Fraser. I'm also still waiting for someone to convince me that Roy is a good long term option that Dallas should bank say 5 for $25 million on. That seems extremely risky and if there's any chance they can get O'Reilly for Larsen +Smith/Faska/Ritchie or whichever non Oleksiak/Nemeth prospect they want then fine.
Despite the goals he scored in Calgary Morrow is still a black hole offensively and passing to him means more offensive chances die than become good scoring opportunities.
Have all struggled, which is part of player development and part just not getting the breaks yet. They're a decent line that's probably going to become a good line but not in the next 34 games.
Can't be your most consistent line, night in and night out, especially when you consider how bad the defense has played. Basically I just can't see the playoffs but do see another 9th-11th finish, missing out yet again on a top five pick and the playoffs. Anyone truly see it with this schedule remaining and how they've played so far?
