I mean the question is: what do we want? A right hander that helps you move the puck on right side of the rink (strategic), or do we need a point scoring defensemen? If it's the right hander to help in smooth puck movement then we have Marchenko. If its a goal scoring defensemen then we can go for Keith Yandle. I dont see the point of trying to get some crappy right hander for 4-5 million that cant score. We may as well stick with Marchenko then. But if were looking to increase blue line scoring then we might as well go with Keith Yandle who is a lefty.
Our GM is historically hesitant about choosing a rookie over a veteran heading into the playoffs, let alone a rookie who has played less than 10 games with the team this year.
Yandle would be nice but at what cost? Teemu Pulkkinen? Andres "Helm with Hands" Athanasiou?
Plug Petry in for a couple of years, allow Marchenko and Sproul to develop, and reassess.
Okay guys, had to pull a few posts here because it got way off track with baseball talk. I love the sport as much as the next guy, but you can continue in PM among each other or start a thread about it in the Other Sports section of the forums. Let's leave this as it's intended, the photoshop war between the Wings and Bruins. Thanks.
Just for good measure, not photoshopped at all, these are really pics as Chara dressed as a pink bunny and Rask as a leprechaun.
