Then come up with the names of the young guys who are legitimately ready to play at the NHL level.

And before you talk about playing youth, look at the line up:

Avery(26)
Prucha (24)
Hossa (25)
Hollweg (23)
Dupuis (27)
Orr (24)
Betts (27)
Girardi (22)
Rachunek (27)
Rozsival (28)
Tyutin (23)
Lundqvist (24)
Pock (25)

These are the guys on the roster who are younger than 29 years old.

Now look at this:

Ozolinsh (34) gone.
Kasparaitis (34) gone.
Ward (28) replaced with a guy who is 26.
Hall (26) replaced with a guy who is 27.

So before you just regurgitate the old line of "playing youth", take a real look at this team.
Thanks for this post. Now I don't have to lokk it all up and argue my point, you did it for me. It seems too many of these fickle NY fans have VERY SHORT memories. Couple of years ago, this franchise fielded one of the oldest lineups in the NHL!
