So let me get this straight we have a 30 goal guy on a very reasonable 3.95 mill per year cap hit and we should just buy him out? put him on waivers? send him to work at Ikea? Does the Mule need to work harder shift in and shift out ? Yea of course he does but he isn't going anywhere.
Zajac - 423 games played - 91 goals 5.75 mill per ( but he's got potential lol)
Mule - 472 games played - 150 goals 3.95 per ( his ceiling is 30..maybe 35 but we know what we have )
His contract is too good to trade unless it makes alot of sense.
Screw Huskins, Sammy, Bert. Etc. Get the kids up now and throw em in the fire. Why give all that experience to rentals?
Your posts continue to provide us with great clarity..considering we are down 4 d men I don't think we have much choice at the back end. Up front I'm not sure what you're implying...whether you like Sammy or not you don't sign a guy and then just say beat it..same with Bert..if you got involved cheering for this team thinking that young guys just get plunked into the lineup you're wrong..we are almost loyal to a fault for over developing guys. Huskins isn't going to be a rental.he was probably our best d man last night..nice to have a stay at home guy back there..Nyquist has done nothing to warrant staying up at least for the time being. 3 games in is not time for the fire sale. Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelaxxxxxx maaaaaaaaaaan
Yea, why have confidence in Holland? All the playoff appearances, the Stanley Cups as recent as 2008 and the finals in 2009. I mean, geez, he really has lost it. I give up. You win.
I agree, people keep coming up with this lame argument that he inherited the team from Bowman..well no s*** he did..everyone inherits a team from someone. Kenny was lucky as hell to get his from Bowman. Its the same lame argument people used to make about Ozzie, " he's just a product of his team, he's not that good". Well what did you expect Ozzie to do back then , " Mr Holland, I don't wish to play for this team you've put in front of me, they are too good and I don't want people to think I'm maybe better then what I am". He still had to stop enough pucks to win everynight and he did a good job of that. Does Kenny have flaws..of course he did but he's done a pretty good job of carrying on the legacy of this franchise. Sometimes I wish he had a little itchier trigger finger but on the other hand he's kept this team competitive pre cap and post cap and as fans what more can we ask for?
The only thing that makes tonight's loss somewhat tolerable is the fact the Nucks have given up 5 to Anaheim halfway through the game. Start Schneider, trade Luongo..hold up maybe keep Lou, trade Schneider..ah crap who knows...Can't wait for the controversy to start.
