This team has a problem scoring goals yet our GM HOPES our rookie prospect(s) push us over the top and other players live up to their potential. Signing a new d-man other than a top 15 in this league will not make a significant difference. Spin it any way you want, talk about transition game, talk about the power play, but the biggest difference will come when we get a top line forward and/or a new coach who is nothing like JM.

Most people disagree with you and see how a puck mover like Liles or Campbell would help the team. Getting out of the defensive zone was a huge issue with the offense, a puck mover will help.

We'd all like to have a Hossa like forward, it's not going to happen, there's a reason he left Atlanta and is willing to take less to stay in Pittsburgh. And how do you know the kids won't help the team?
