We have retooled the rig to fit the players we have locked up long term, rather than building the ship around a guy who would have been gone in a year or two. Naslund fits the kind of game Gomez plays; an end-to-end offense that likes to score on the rush. Not to mention he plays the half-boards on the PP. Do you really think the Sedin's are above Gomez and Zherdev in terms of talent? Hardly.

If you really thought a tweak here and there was going to put us over the top, you were mistaken.
Where do you get your stats from that Zherdev is as fast as Straka....?
Zherdev has to prove that he has the discipline, heart, skill to make us forget Jagr and/or Straka.

What I said was that we are retooling and sofar I see no sign of us being a better squad over last year.

As far as comparing the Sedin twins with Gomez/Zherdev combo.....

Plain on paper the twins put up impressive stats +10-23 with 150/170 points between them on average over the past 3 seasons. That would have been a deal worth having....
unspectacular and the real deal
