Frankly I could give 2 s**** about moves that KH 'should' make. Im sorry, but i'll still say the out look of this team is extremely bright. The free agent class SUCKS. And the last thing we need is another Stephen Weiss bad type contract that we'll just regret, take up a roster spot, and block someone who could be better long term making an impact.
This team has a good young coach, who has already got to know half of the team and coached most, if not all of them, who's had success at every level, chomping at the bit to prove he's better or equal to the man he's replacing.
We've got a great goalie tandem, with Mrazek looking like a future stud in the making. Great prospects on D who might FINALLY get a chance to play full time with the team this season like they should have been doing last year.
Some terrific young forwards, Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan, Pulkkinen, Abby, Helm to name a few that really could keep improving and add to our foreword depth.
Some terrific prospects in GR the likes of Larkin, Mantha, Athanasiou, who could be ready to contribute very very soon.
This is a playoff team who nearly defeated the eventual SC finalists. I see no problems in sticking with the program, letting the young guys gradually have bigger roles. I see no need for impatience or any brash moves just to try and 'keep up with the Joneses'. I believe this team will be good for a long time and has several great pieces on the way. I'd rather not see us blow it all with some stupid moves now.
