Response to rebuilding?
do you think dagenais or any of the other possible mogilny wanna-be's can be as effective? the logical answer is no. if a rookie even hits 20 goals, that will be a big thing. but if that rookie is counted on to be a vital part of a team's 2nd scoring line, then that team has a lesser chance of winning the cup.
lets face it, every forward on this team not named elias, arnott, sykora, and gomez is primarily a checker/grinder/defensive player. i fully expect elias and sykora to continue to grow as players, and for gomez and brylin to have more 60 point and 20 goal seasons respectively. in that sense, losing almo wouldnt hurt as much, but this requires alot of things going right for the devils.
also, lets not forget that not having a solid #6 dman is fatal as was clearly shown in the finals. this, nowone can dispute.
unless lou does something else, two rookies are being put in two vital roles. is it that much of a stretch to say that the team has a lesser chance of making the finals than before?
