I see most of the guys i just listed be a huge part of the the big club next season

I agree that penceling in these unknowns is premature but declaring the move a colossal failure is just as premature.
I get that but Joensuu isn't elite talent. The guy had a great season in the SM but lets be realistic, there has been numerous European skaters that have had great seasons on euro ice, only to fail in the NHL. And I'm not willing to wager that Joensuu will be an anomaly, he's great for the fourth line but third? I'm not so sure.
