Ok GM wanna bees, it's that time of the year. No, we are not going to get a top six FA forward that is big and tough because there are none available. Cleary will be re-signed. Flip will go. Bert will stay, Cola will be bought out. Sammy will not be bought out because he will claim to be injured. We will trade for a mediocre player and that will be it.
I'm not saying this as a Holland critic, I am saying that that is realitically what will happen. There are no superstars available and the really good trades are to expensive.
Remeber the trade deadline - Iginla, Jagr, Morrow. None of them worked out. Jagr got to the finals but didn't score a single goal in the playoffs. And don't forget Nash last year.
Holland is alot smarter than most fans.
