we do a fine job of developing kids who deserve to play.
im not concerned with that.
giving thornton a 2 year deal stops you from FORCING a kid to play.
thats what happens when you say, oh, we'll just give that spot to a kid...and then when theres no kid to play, youre screwed and pretty much have to force him to play when hes not ready.
if you lose richards, callahan, and girardi, youre going to be pretty much guaranteeing a kid or 2, or 3 a roster spot, and you can almost guarantee at least 1 will not be ready for that spot.
thats a great way to ruin prospects...just ask the thrashers, blue jackets, islanders, etc on that.
I fully agree. But I don't think it would need to be the maximum. That would make it tougher to trade him at the end of his contract.
