And with Markov's and theoretically Jagr's contract ending in 13-14, there would be lots of space to resign and start a youth movement with a few of our prospects while keeping our top line in tact. The option is also there to trade one of Plek, DD or Bourque, Clowe as well if things got tight. There might be a bit of a mediocre year after 13-14 but there should be some good prospects in the pipeline as well as some young guy who've developed like Galch and Gally. Pretty likely those guys are capable of 2nd line mins by 14-15 and then it's just a matter of putting together a new 3rd line.
