-thats the lineup i want too. my argument is we can have both alfie and jurco. maybe jurco will start in GR and miss 15-20 games but thats not a big deal. yes starting the best 12 forwards does involve jurco, but it also involves alfie.
what if i told you we can have both aflie and jurco. someone will get injured and jurco will get called up. i dont see why this is such a big argument. aflie led our team in scoring last season, his contract wont be anything big because we dont have that much cap space. sign him and he will put up 40 something points and we will be happy.
Horn would be good. But Holland seems to like to overpay Nash........... But and this is important, he is also like Hommer in the fact he is limited other than in front of the net. My personnel preferences are Martin and Hanzel.
Nice AHL player but he isn't even as good as Glendening. About the same size as well-a little small.
hes played like one game so thats impossible to know. sheahan didnt look good his first nhl games and now look at him.
I think bottom line gritty players are a little overrated for this team. Helm, Glendening, Miller, Abby, Callahan are all gritty enough. We need gritty top 6 forwards to absorb some of the punishment that Z and Dats take. A guy like Evander Kane or Wayne Simmonds would go a long way in terms of taking the load off of Z and Dats. Also you have to consider that Nyquist and Tatar are small guys that will take punishment too. I'd be okay with an overpayment for Kane or Simmonds because it will pay off big time for our team in the long run because we don't have any top 6 gritty players. Corey Perry is a pretty perfect example of what this team needs but he is nowhere near available.
id over pay for ryan callahan too. seems like a huge upgrade over abby.
