5 pages for Nestrasil... for Nestrasil... c'mon guys!
Let's not use "potential" in the same sentence as Nestrasil... This is pathetic. He played ONLY because of his size. Babs is trying to balance this team with what he have. We have a skilled team but we don't have muscle... Babs tried to use Nesty like he used Bert last season but it didn't worked well.
People are complying about Abdel on the 1st line... he has the size and he's willing to chase the puck, he going to dirty areas and he's creating space for Dats, that's why Dats likes him. Do we need more skilled forwards? We need some Power Forwards.
Boychuk is a good defenseman, don't get me wrong, but he's a lot like Brent Seabrook. He's good defensively, good enough offensively, and worked well within the system he was playing in. That said, he's not a superstar and shouldn't get paid like one.
Since Q is getting paid $4.25m I guess that for Boychuk $5m/$5,5m should be enough.
