I am not a fan of tanking but I also am not a fan of overpriced vets who suck. If I had to choose between one or the other I'd take the extra losses. Between McD, Sauer, Staal, Girardi, Gilroy, MDZ, is it really true we can't disperse ROszi's minutes?
Drop off in D-play prob won'tbe as big as some are hinting. I think Roszi has been one of the worst players on the ice.
the only problem with this arguement IMO is that if you are going to say that we aren't good enough so it doesn't matter if we lose with rookie dmen, then by the same logic we aren't good enough to give up assets to get brad richards as a rental...
you can't have it both ways. if you think we are still a nonplayoff team with richards then why not wait until july 1st when he becomes a ufa
