but i expect dougie to make moves at deadline
There are no moves to make.
Doug Wilson has completely depleted the top prospects in the farm system.
I don't think Antti Niemi is an elite goalie.
I think Griess is better IMO.
I love Pavs... but I think he is about as good as he is going to get and I wouldn't mind trading him now to get some elite prospects....
This is it for the Thornton and Marleau Era. Ideally if we are out of it by the deadline I say ship them all the F out. Thornton, Marleau, Pavs, Clowe and maybe even Havlat.
Rejuvenate the farm system with some youth and rising stars.... probably can get some good value for them.
Maybe even Fire McClelland and Doug Wilson if we are that bad.
I hate McClelland as a coach, his strategy, dump and chase. The game has changed and found ways to defend this system, it's antiquated.... brainless.... mindless.... uncreative hockey IMO.
We have some real talented guys on the top two lines.... let them be creative and use there skills to make plays - anybody with half a brain can dump and chase... this team is underutilizing the talent they have.
