Really? Who are these kids? Tinordi, Beaulieu, Pateryn, Saint-Denis and Ellis? Three 20 years old, 1 guy who has played 3 games in the NHL and a career AHLer on a last place team in the AHL!?

Beaulieu and Ellis are still 2 or 3 years away from the NHL, Tinordi will have to earn a spot in the NHL instead of having one given to him while a Pateryn or a Saint-Denis in his prime can only hope to be as good as Bouillon.

Also people are making a lineup and acting as it will remain exactly the same for a 82 games schedule.
Aside from the "kids" part, I also believe that we should improve every year. I don't believe that we have an all-star D. And as of now....we are going to have the same D next year that we have this year. It's all about improving, all about grooming kids for the future as well.
