In claiming that they are waring "rose-colored glasses," you are saying that Brunner and Nyqvist have no chance of doing well in the NHL next season. That prediction holds as much water as does the claim that they will do well; it's a prediction. And so sorry, but people don't need you to save them from their own optimism.

best team we can hope for. if nothing else, it'd be deep. maybe good enough to make a playoff run. doan and kubina would be short contracts too.

obviously, it won't happen though.

Kubina used to be good but he was a healthy scratch for the Flyers in the playoffs. Heck even Lilja beat him out of a spot.

Yup. Pass on Kubina. He's gonna want 3-4/year.

Maybe take a chance on Hannan?

We don't need bottom pair dmen like Hannan. We lost Lidstrom and Stuart. If we are going to remain a Cup threat, we need Yandle. I would pay a premium to get that guy. Kenny needs to deal from his strength which is centre depth. So dealing Flip as the centerpiece of any Yandle trade would be worth it. Flip, Nyquist and Abs is a steep price to pay but to get a top pair dman who is only 25 years old is worth it big time. We have to give Phoenix a reason to want to give up their best dman.
