The fan base would've hated Gordie Howe, too. He was a "floater" as well. In reality smooth skaters and strong positional players often look lazy because they're not flailing around to make things happen.

Mantha doesn't have to be a Z or Dasyuk replacement. I've always figured him for a Franzen replacement. Kind of a floater but a safe player and effective scorer.

Stamkos is a no-brainer, even with the clot issue.  1) I think there are multiple kinds of blood clot issues, not all of them are dangerous enough to be fatal risks, but I'm not sure.  2) If, God forbid, something did happen to him, he's young enough to not hurt us with a cap recapture penalty if he retires.  He's light years ahead of any other talent available, it's not even close, so Holland has to make a push.

Blues. Easy. I'm pegging them with the Cup. Hate the Blues but it's an old, stale hate. Rather them than Pittsburgh or San Jose. Still pretty neutral about the Lightning.

If we signed Todd Bertuzzi I really don't get what the argument is against signing Radulov.
Bertuzzi paralyzed a guy and ruined his health for the rest of his life. Moore still suffers from headaches and lightheadedness everyday.

Bertuzzi was never a locker room cancer or a coaches nightmare, at least not that I'm aware of. Different scenario.
