I have just one thing to add regarding the Carle trade. You guys saying you'd rather have Eminger at 1 mil than Carle at 3.4 mil are ok with us being 0-6 at the beginning of the season and 4-8 BEFORE the Carle trade??? Eminger was a carbon copy of Jones, scoring on the offense but sucks in his own zone. Until Carle came to the team we had one top pairing and 2 bottom pairings. You certainly would fail quickly beyond belief with the second pairing we were fielding prior tothe trade. Carle is our 2nd best dman, yes he still makes mistakes but he reads plays a TON better than everyones golden boy Coburn. Parent is better than Coburn in his own zone and it won't be too long before Parent is better than Carle too.
I see that all of you have convienently forgotten just how bad of a job Coburn did when asked to lead the 2nd pairing at the beginning of this season. He FAILED miserably. Everyone was questioning his success from last year and wondering if it was that he played well or was it just that Timonen MADE him better, or at least LOOK better, than he really was.
