A place for our intermediary discussion between games and such. I'll start: I actually really like the idea of not playing Jaros, Wolanin, and Lajoie. Playing too many rookies on an opening night line-up, and for the first couple weeks in NHL, is recipe for disaster. Emotions running high and if one thing goes wrong everything can come crumbling down and could demoralize the young guns. Harpur and Demelo have experience and can reel their emotions back in, plus I'd rather they crumble early than the younger guys.
