You have a team of all kids, and you never get out of the abyss. Just ask the Oilers. They keep trying to build around kids, and they don't get it either. Youth is only good if you have vets around to help them grow and set an example. Unless you get lucky enough to draft Crosby and Malkin in back-to-back years, but not every draft year can have someone like 'that' who's attainable.
It's possible to incorporate youth while still having a vet presence. The 2000 Devils had four rookies in the starting lineup, but they still had a good group of vets around them. They need to have some more youth in this lineup, but it's not the be-all end-all it's made out to be by you and others.
