GOOD LORD. I said I think Jimmy is decent, and we're set with him. You think Jimmy is some level of good, and we're set with him. Either way, we're all in agreement that we're set with him. Leave the semantics alone. Talk about something more relevant.
WRT to Franzen vs. Filppula, Top-Six vs. Bottom-Six. Franzen is 4 years older, slipping faster than Filppula with age (IMO), and big enough for the bottom-six. Five years from now, I envision him as a third line winger. Five years from now, I envision Filppula as a second-line winger, or perhaps third-line center (depending on who's brought in).
I said to buy out two contracts - Samuelsson and Quincey - if we can't move them in a trade.
I can't even begin to think about how to respond to this post. It's simply insane.
Do you realize/understand what buying out all those contracts would do to this team both in the near and long-term?
Face the facts. 20 year run is over. Has been over. It's time to start over. Clear the roster. Acquire new kids and picks in trade. Sign some new kids in FA. Call up our own kids. Get a couple high 1st rd. picks.
