It is a fine balance that only a few organization really seem to pull off well.
I can't help but think this team undervalues the development of role players. Yes, to some degree they're a dime-a-dozen, but most projected bottom-six forwards for this club seem to go the way of Riku Hahl. Right now it's hard to say what will happen with guys like Brad Malone and Luke Walker, but Walker's lack of progress is not encouraging. And the jury's still out on guys like Sgarbossa, Heard, Condon, Nermark, etc.
