I agree, but not when the team has played better with our young AHLers in the line-up.

The bottom line is if we were trying to tank, we wouldn't need to make obvious line-up changes to do it. Our veterans have shown themselves more than capable of losing. Putting the rookies in, win or lose, has merits of its own.
