Seeing that guys like Arnott, Versteeg, Peverley, Penner would have been available I would think, our inability to score goals should have been addressed.
again its Sather, and his tendency to try to convert falling stars into broadway studs.
It is really getting old to see this team run out of ideas after the all star break year after year, regardless who is the coach.
This really doesn't bode well. Now that playoffs are on the line (not so long ago we were the dark horse for the stanley cup) the scoring will be even more strained, or do we believe with the playoffs on the line Boyle will increase his scoring rate, or Dubinsky will discover he is a scorer.
Wolski, Frolov, Anisimov, (zherdev etc before them ) are what they are: talented but inconsistent, and not players who will thrive in Torts system.
it really gives me the blues!
you are wrong, Defense is also our problem, specifically Gilroy and a weak 3rd pairing and inexperienced 2nd pairing. Getting McCabe was a good move and should have been done a while ago instead of trying to squeeze offense out of Gilroy and Del Zotto. Even if McCabe doesn't work out we will have a better picture which UFA defenseman to target or instead make a trade.
