A couple other things--Baranka and Sauer strike me as similar players--Baranka has gone through the development. Bourret could be a huge steal for us if he develops. The team is getting better prospects with more sandpaper. Dupont size and toughness looks to be another. Dubinsky, Byers. MSG ran a clip on Pyatt on one of its pre-games recently--very excited about him too.
I think Dawes' days in the organization are numbered. The acquisition of Bourret just affirms that belief. With Hossa developing his game, and Prucha continuing to battle, I just don't see a place for him in NY, since Callahan is a better fit on the 3rd line. And, now in Hartford, with the arrival of Bourret, (a better top six prospect), the return of Jessiman, and potential additions next year, such as Dupont, Pyatt, Olver and Anisimov, and the possible promotions of Bahensky and Graham, Dawes is clearly expendable.
