They are good enough for Syracuse, but Yzerman's job is to determine if they are good enough for Tampa. And that's been looking less likely of late. There's a big step between stopping pucks in the AHL and stopping them in the NHL. Sure, you want a winning environment on the farm and strong team there, but ultimately you want to graduate players to the NHL, and the ones are less likely to have that ceiling, you got to make the hard decisions and move on.
