They can't become good nhl players if Holland blocks them from playing because of Helm and Glendening
But we have players lower on the food chain than Helm and Glendening. Why is the attack on them? Just the money issue?
No Miller/Ott gets you Mantha and you can bump Helm down a line. Or you get Frk or Bertuzzi.
Then if we don't sign Vanek (who I don't think should be here long term) then you can have Mantha.
I think Mantha needs more development time, so I'm fine with Vanek for a year and let Mantha steal his spot sometime during the year. Giving Pulkkinen or Jurco a shot could have been a better for the team, though.
Don't like the Miller/Ott signings.
