Totally agree, I was just saying that the departure of Jagr, Nylander, Shanny and others will not necessarily open spots, it most likely will just cause the Blueshirts to spend money in free agency. Although, if a player like Dawes, Dubinsky, Prucha or somebody else does surprisingly develop into a first liner, all the better. But no matter what, the depth in the system bodes very well for the future.
