Losing is habbit forming. Players should not be handed ice time in the NHL (unless you're tanking), so why should the prospects expect any different?
If you want more ice, play better, work harder. Send the right message right from the start of their career.
I agree with this, though I also think the Wolves are a little too saturated with vets. For example, whole veteran lines as opposed to veteran line mates and prospects forming lines by themselves.
Hopefully the next years farm team strikes the best balance.
