But in hockey, like life, you get out what you put in. If you are adverse to risk, every risk other than the highest percentage of calculated risk, you will find yourself often standing still while others pass you by.

Nashville got stronger and better today, just as the Ducks did yesterday - Two teams with whom we are competing for a playoff spot.

The Kings continue to stand still.
Don't forget Chicago, that was a steal of a deal. Overall I agree, it is time to dump some assets, even more than what we were hoping to dump. We need a big splash, can Dean answer the call? I am sitting here hoping...
