Of course Jared and Nathan should pan out better than Krug (this one is a bit unexpected) and Bart.

Point I was making is that they were older.
They are playing top minutes in Hamilton.
Most likely, next year, two of them will be on the team.

To me Murray was a rental while Tinordi was being nurtured with the Dogs.
As for Pateryn, his offense improved a lot in the last two years.
He would not get any PP time in Montréal as he gets some in Hamilton.
Beaulieu is also rising up pretty fast but he still need a bit of maturing.

I expect two of them will be in the team next year.
That is a lot: changing 33% of your defense.
Also you need to take in the equation that Therrien (like many coaches) prefers reliable veterans to young players.

None of them can take a top-4 role.
The last D-men who came in and got a top-4 role is PK and even this year, there were times where he was benched...

I repeat, they are younger.
We are pretty much set in defense for the next two or three years.
