the Isles definitely have need for him, for a few years at least. his experience is valuable, but the Isles are lacking in grit on D, so....
while not be the best idea to slot a youngster in his place (DeHaan, Donovan, etc...), there is also the possibility that one of the kids can exceed what AM is doing, for cheaper. not that cap space is an issue, but 'homegrown' and 'budget' seem to be the key words in Snow's long term plan. the 'kids' will be 23 and 24 in 2014, and are high draft picks. not really kids anymore.
a lot will depend on how Donovan and DeHaan play this year. and wildcards Reinhart, Mayfield, and Pedan. and wilder-cards, Dalhuesin (sp?), Pokka, Pelech and Pulock.
