Yes, but..... we need to sign one more true top 6 forward, really a 1st line guy, and if we're eating Lombardi's contract, we'll just be treading water signing someone to replace him. While it's true that we'll be almost through it by the time Suter's deal will come up, it's another example of "it's always something". At some point, I think we're going to have to be able to show Weber and Suter that we can spend when it makes sense and can keep the team above the "competitive for the last 2 playoff spots" level.

Mr. Poile - we're sitting in 4th, game in hand on the guys right behind us, 5 points behind the deadthings who have 2 in hand on us. We need a 3rd center. I like Mueller and he'll be great replacing Ward on the Smitty line next year, but...... this is not only about us getting home ice (and maybe even making a run at the wings if they burn those 2 game in hand) but it does send a message to Weber and Suter we will pay-to-play as it makes sense.
