Maybe if those pieces were Yzerman and Lidstrom
Har har. Now if you'll turn your attention to the standings you notice that the wings are currently tied for third place in the Western Conference and have beaten every other ranked team below us (aside from Phoenix whom we haven't played yet). We've also taken Chicago to overtime twice in two of the tougher games they've played all season.
How is it that I'm having a hard time convincing people that we actually have a competitive team?
giving up nyquist or tatar and a high pick for someone as mediocre as ryder or any ufa would be a HUGE mistake
and samuelsson f*cken sucks and bert is getting old and always hurt there not gonna bring this team to the next level we'd be better off getting rid of one or both of them and letting the younger hungrier kids play fulltime
Read it again, I said Nyquist or Tatar and a pick would get someone better than Ryder, but I think a guy like Ryder would help...if he could be had more cheaply. I was just using him as an example of a winger (not converted center) who can finish plays when his centers set him up.
