Now, we could always invite Parrish and/or Murray to camp and see if they can play well enough to warrant an SPC, but I really think we're going with the youth movement this year. We may suck, but I'd rather suck with a bunch of younger players in the lineup who are learning the ropes than a bunch of older veterans who turn out to be a waste of cash. That's what got Toronto into their current condition.
Personally I think it would be stupid for Poile to just go with the youngsters this year. I wouldnt have a problem with it if this organization was firmly planted in nashville but I don't think we can afford a rebuild, which is basically what this season would be. jokien isnt amazing but he's still young and could probaly be had for cheap. Plus if we decide he didnt work out we can let him walk after this season. I don't see the risk there. I do however think if we were to sign Parrish/Murray it would have to be a 1 year deal
