Thank you!

You have dead weight with Leighton, Shelley and Walker and Zherdev is still up in the air. Thinking one step ahead means your offseason cornerstone move is getting a goalie which was always supposed to be the main focus. Then working around that. They then wouldn't have gone after Meszeros or jumped at him like they did. Meszeros is good but at 4M he's a bit of a luxury.....if you wanted Meszeros or a player like him you could move Carle, and not have overpaid for Shelley, Walker and Leighton. The fact is that Holmgren was making crap up as he went along and Bobrovsky has mitigated the situation and made it more palatable. He's essentially covered up some of Holmgren's ineffective offseason moves besides O'Donnel and Mesz who would be less of a priority if you had Thomas. However, it remains to be seen if some of this might bite us in the playoffs since Bob is not exactly a seasoned vet goalie and still has to round out his game. Boosh is Boosh...good for a stretch and the consumate backup.
