I see zero chance Quincey gets dealt ... I'd personally rather trade kindl/smith right now and give ouellet marchenko some games
Kids are gonna have to get in some games , Quincey will probably be gone after this season , and when some kids are ready to step up and take a bigger role I'd expect Ericsson to be the next to be gone
I agree with you, but only to a point. Sure things might be a little different. But if the new coaches don't look at what our PP did successfully last year, with roughly the same personnel, (and try to recreate that success) then they're dangerously stupid and should immediately be fired.
If you had the second best PP a year ago, and you had almost the exact same personnel, the largely the same system, most of the same coaches, and access to all the technical information and game footage a person could ask for, would you completely scrap everything and start from scratch?
Neither would anybody else. Surely Blash is smart enough to build of past successes, and try to improve upon past failures. Reinventing the wheel would just be dumb. The powerplay was our biggest success last season. I wouldn't expect too much to change in that regard, unless of course, it begins to struggle.
I just hope they get rid of the stupid no look drop pass that is way too predictable.
For an organization rapidly embracing a full youth movement, there doesn't seem to be much logic behind giving up Mantha and/or a first round pick. I personally don't buy it and hope Holland stays the course at this point. If drafting and developing is your thing, then you don't sacrifice that for Dion Phaneuf. Maybe three years ago with a younger Pav and Z, but not anymore.
Agree 100%, unless we can land a top pairing dman in/entering their prime.
