This is actually one time where I actually think the best thing for us might have been to do nothing. Getting Bert, Sammy, and Helm back is literally like adding a third line. That's roughly 13-16 minutes of ice time every night. I have to believe that much ice time with players as good as they are will increase scoring or at the very least, play much more in the other teams end. The cost is just too high right now for rental players who would likely have only a minimal effect.
With that said, I do believe the salary cap has revealed that Holland is not the magician he was made out to be all these years.
I must admit.....Franzen just can't do anything right in my book. Im not saying im right. I'm afraid I have already given up on him. He was a beast in the 2008 playoffs though. I sure wish we had THAT guy.
