Some things never change...remember Bert, Sammy and Cleary? Of course you do, but if it wasn't for their injuries, we'd of never seen the Jurco - Sheahan - Tatar line that pretty much got us to the playoffs that year....
And what baffles me is we've basically never seen that line put together again for some apparent reason. Those 3 were very good and they were playing against 2nd pairing defenseman at the time due to all injurie. With the depth we have now they would play against 3rd pairs. If I'm Blashill I definitely try that line again
Looking like a terrible day I'm scared senseless for noon, but part of me doesn't care anymore cause I'm just so tired of ken holland being the wings GM. Team won't be good until this over the hill guy is out of the system
We will get Nielsen who is good but won't trade for a d-man and be the exact same team as last year. AA is here for a reason to replace him cause he's cheaper and way better. I hate Darren helm in the top 6 it's so damn useless but I know he will be there. Pathetic. Given up on holland at this point
Florida offered the contract plus a second round pick. What if we offer the Datsyuk contract plus Pulk and a mid tier pick. So we lose Pulk, rid the contract and give up a 5th round pick or something (or maybe 4th rounder)... Would that sweeten the deal? Or would we be giving up too much?
It sounds like we're talking with Arizona and I believe that by taking back pronger we won't have to give up as much because we save Arizona from actually dollars being paid which is an advantage for them. This would significantly drive the price down in my opinion
