I am different from you in so far as I don't ever want to see a contending Penguins team with this young and inexperienced a D.
Having been to the dance a couple of times does not a veteran make.

Which also means that if we are trading Martin and Orpik at some point for asset management/cap-reasons, I'd want some other vet(s) brought in instead to complement whichever kids make it with us.
