True. But the reality is that it would take 4-5 years for most DMan to mature and gain sufficient experience. And with not many game changing UFA DMan on the horizon, are we satisfied with missing the playoffs year after year? At what point do we start leveraging some of our youth for immediate help? What is the point of having 8-9 Top 6 forward (3 skilled top line centre man), while waiting for our young back end to mature (and risk losing some of our young forwards to UFA or the salary cap)?
