Cally and Hags will likely be on IR to start the season. There will be opportunities for kids to play.

The point is, you don't just open a spot and expect that a kid is going to fill it. Kristo has played all of 9 games in the AHL. Miller may or may not be ready to take the next step. That's what training camp is for. Yes, Hrivik would have been in camp. Doesn't mean he would have made the team. Doesn't mean he'll make it this year.

If a kid is ready, space will be made. If a kid isn't ready, then we already have his replacement. What about that is confusing you?
Nothing is confusing me. They believe these kids are ready, they have said as much. They are EXPECTING kids to make the team. Planning on it. What is confusing you? You said it yourself. "There will be opportunities for kids to play". You think they'd rather have Powe, Asham or Pyatt playing over a kid? Not at all. Boyle has been rumored to be available all summer. They'd gladly move out a bottom sixer to get a spot for a kid. They believe they are ready. Told AV as much. Expect it.
