Bergevin knows good teams integrate 2 rookies per year nowadays (As a cap-control tactic) That's why he insisted on a bridge to PK, he wants the rookies to play 5 years for cheap. (All of them.)
Last year was Chuckie and Gallagher started. Next year will be Kristo(If I was to bet today, however don't count out Leblanc too quick) / Tinordi. He just need to find one top 6 winger. (I don't think Gionta will be back, we should trade him when he comes back.)
The year after Collberg / Beaulieu with hopefully Leblanc knocking on the door. Then the year after Hudon / Bozon / Dietz / 2013 choices + etc. Hudon was a major steal.
All of this will allow us to get (1) major UFA at some point. Looking at this from our current point of view, I think we may be in a situation to trade 2013 draftees for major talent around 2015(our current talent pool is filled enough to sustain a couple of years). Let's make the right choices.
