just hard to watch guys like eaves and miller turn it around so hard with us then maybe have the door shut on them. once again... i know its a business, just would a tough loss imo.
i do disagree with one thing however.... miller/eaves may be a dime a dozen, great shutdown pk guys but ritola has never been given a chance (much like quincey) so its tough for me to agree that he is as well "a dime a dozen"
with or without modano i like what we have going for next year... i love our top 6 already.... dats z holmstrom, franzen filpula hudler, third line of bert, cleary, modano/abby.... its going to be a fun year
Consider the roles of the players. Who is the better option at 3rd line center?
Quincey had plenty of chances. Quincey was a guy who couldn't beat out Chelios or Meech for a roster spot.
Ritola probably doesn't have a long term plan with the team anyway. Mursak, Tatar, Nyquist, Nestrasil, Sheahan, Ferraro all project much nicer to the NHL. Ritola is gone as far as I'm concerned, it's just a matter of when.
