It all depends...

If that gets us THE guy, a Panarin type that puts us over the top in the playoffs, I am in.

This is especially true given how rich our G prospect pool is supposed to be.  Yes we might have to wait for Danil, but those two years with #9 were fun.  Gimme another guy like that and I like our chances.

Indeed.

I agree with all of that, Philly.

There's just been so much talk that he'll be traded, I tend to believe it.  Another issue is that I think team doctors cleared him a couple times but his doctors did not.  I don't read that as "I want to play".  In this era of fake news, though, who knows what the truth is...

I would like for him to stay.

Oh crap, I've been thinking we weren't far off for 20 years...GMDM goes out and gets RIchardson and Lachance and "THIS IS THE YEAR".  ...oh...guess not.

But I like it, so I'll hope for the best.  I think we need players like what we lost (9, 95) but we need them long term.  PLD might be one of them...and others could come here to get to play with him.  It could happen...

I guess they got it done...

I appreciate the glass half full note!

G and D are handled. No question needs to be asked about that for now.

I'm just of the view that we need dynamic goal scorers.  i'm not sure if that type is on our roster and guys like Tex, Foudy, Bemstrom and so forth grow into the role.  

I've been patient this long.  I'll wait and see.  But it does feel like it'll be a short offseason with lots of news.

The challenge is that past performance is no guarantee of future success.

We had some of those guys but they didn't want to be here for what we were willing to give them.  So we either wait to grow new ones, find new ones or do without and play even better defense.

I thought about Bob last night.  I don't root against him (though I did root against Nashville and NYR), but I don't want him back either.

It's a team concept and when the team executes, good things happen.

I just love watching hockey again...and it's on all the time, like March Madness!
