and the flyers and how well they have implemented their young prospects into their rosters. Guys
like Duchene, Couturier, Schenn, O'reilly. I'm tired of the excuses that our prospects are not NHL ready. How will we ever know unless we give them a shot? It's like saying Schneider has no playoff experience. How is he supposed to get playoff experience if we don't use him? Maybe if we played him more in the playoffs then he would get some playoff experience! It's not rocket science! As for prospects, I find it hard to believe that Couturier is more NHL ready than a guy like Schroeder who is older and more physically and mentally ready. If you're still not convinced, look at Ryan O'Reilly. He was a second round pick in 2009 and was put into the linup the year he got drafted and now he's their best 2-way forward.

I think it would be worth a shot to try don't you? I think this is a great combination of youth and leadership.
