Lesser FA signings would be pointless for this team. I'd rather have the young guys fill those roles and develop. We have room for about 2 stud forwards and a stud defenseman. Signing anyone else would force us to expose our good prospects to waivers.
While I partially agree that we need to play home grown talent Matt Martin here is exception in my point of view. We really lack such kind of players.
Nice to see Lindros get the nod. He deserves to be there. But overall, holy hell what a weak class compared to the last few.
Weak class? I have no idea who Quinn (Pat?) and Vachon were but Sergey Makarov is one of the best players in the history of hockey. Top 50 of all time easily. His NHL career was short but I'm sure that 40+ fans clearly remember Makarov dominating the best NHL's while playing for USSR.
We all know who Lindros was as well. A unique forward dominating NHL in his prime.
If only we could all make that much money from sucking at our jobs.
well, Sheahan, is a third line player in NHL meaning that he is approximately top 400 at pro hockey worldwide out of let's say several thousands of pro hockey players. Are you sure you're top 10-20% at what you're doing?
