-- Key players that are aging. (Nabakov, Streit, Visnovsky) Even if we resign them, how many more years could they really give us?

-- Key players not developing their games. (Okposo, Bailey) Two top 10 picks that were rushed and are getting outplayed by fourth and fifth round picks!
I'd like to add, "Keeping players/prospects in the AHL and not rushing them (this year, at least)"

Every team poops the bed every now and then.
