Sadly I think either way we go we're pretty screwed. I don't trust our goalies even if we had lidstrom in front of them, and I don't trust seto to replace marleau any time soon.

Nabby's 40 wins are underrated on these boards. We'll be lucky to be .500 with greiss and some noname minor leaguer considering the crap D we've got in front of them.

I like our forward depth more than I like our goalie depth. Thornton can make most guys a ton better, heck look what he did to cheechoo, perhaps it is time for us to lose marleau. I don't think that's the way to go if we want to win the cup but it guarantees us playoffs.

keep Nabby: get to playoffs, but let softies in once playoffs start, plus he'll have even less goal support. Oh and he's getting old.

keep marleau: possibly miss playoffs w/o nabby, but if greiss or other randoms turn into heroes we can squeeze into 8th and get ourselves a cheap playoff hero.

I hate both options.
