I really liked the Sammy aquisition if we landed Sutar and had a better shot at a compeitive season. Now I think these depth signgings are only going to hurt the oppertunity for our young guys to come up and get a chance at a bigger role. We got alot of forwards and I think it's time to let Miller, Eaves, and maybe someone else go and see if we can play our young guys more.
We got some promising prospects and our bottom 6 is really looking like it's going to be good in another year or two. The only thing I don't like is that Dat's, Franzen, and Z will certinaly be on the decline in he next couple seasons when we our ready for the next big run. I think Smith is going to turn into a really great defensemen but I am sure Holland has his eyes set on a big name defensemen next off season. I mean really though guys, our forwards are night and day better than last season. We are lacking Lidstrom, Smith could certinatly be as good or better than Stuart come playoff time. This team will make the playoffs and it will have a chance to win a round or two in the playoffs. If you don't think so your just a whiney little girl that just got way to high on the idea od Parise and Sutar.
