So I did a bit more digging online and this is what I found for anyone who is interested.
For every 1 lb you take off rotating its equivilent to taking about 8 lb off the bike. So 11 lb of rotating might be like taking 80-88 lb off your bike. I might be a little off.
Also from what I read,
For an HP guess I would say it could be the same as gaining 4 -5 hp. Based off 11lb drop
So for the front sprocket the difference is about .5 oz which equates to about .0375 lbs. So the long and short of it is no its not worth it. If you happen to need a new front sprocket and you can get one for a good price sure it wont hurt but dont go out and buy a new one for that reason.
I answered my own question just thought I would post the results incase anyone cared.
I don't know if the holes help any, but it's not going to hurt it. This is the one i am using.
