...and there isn't generally all that much turn-over during any given season. Sure, there will be a dozen or so call-ups but the vast majority of those will be temporary 2 or 3 gamers. If more than a couple of call-ups become semi-permanent, I'd be surprised. Of course, you'll have turnover in the off-season due to trades, players making the transition to the big club, and new player acquisitions entering the system but that's becoming the norm even at the NHL level. Check the main boards for all of the disucssion and rumour-mongering. In short, you will have a core of players that you will get to know and enjoy for five or six years, another group that have a couple or three years in the AHL and then the relatively uncommon 1 year or less players.
