I am all for trading Seto, and I do like Beachemin.....but I'd rather see Seto moved as part of a package for a a higher caliber defenseman, and maybe a younger one.
I meant what I meant. The players we have in the core and under long term and NTC contracts are at their peak and what you see is what you get. That might not be enough to win it all. We are still capable of winning, but the window is closing with this group when you compare this team to LA for instance.
Don't misunderstand the point. I am talking about skill sets and development. Can we win it all this year? Sure ... if we fix the obvious defensive weakness and the team re-discovers how to play with a purpose, we can win this year.
