Yet other guys have done just that. If you have the horses you play them. If we land a guy like Barkov you put him in there. Same with Forsberg. We're not getting these kids to play bottom 6, these are top 6 talents and that's where they need to be. That's also why you have vets that help them through the transition. It's rough sometimes but you have to put them out there. If they have the qualities we believe they have we have a Toews/Kane tandem for years to come. They'll be bumps along the way but you live with them and go forward as fast as you can.
