Morin at 3RW and Smith at 4RW will be fine. Morin will be a slight downgrade from regular-season Stalberg and Smith will be a slight upgrade from regular-season Frolik. It will be hard for Morin to be less effective than Stalberg in the playoffs, but Frolik was a playoff performer while he was here so it will be interesting to watch what happens there.
Doubtful and doubtful.

Morin will most likely be a significant downgrade from Stalberg's regular season performance. And I doubt Smith plays defense and PK as well as Frolik did.

There will definitely be growing pains, and those pains will cost the Hawks a little.

Thing is, it needed to happen. Cap went down, players got older and more expensive, prospects got older and closer to NHL players.
