Why is anyone surprised? This team has little talent up front. Making the playoffs would have given everyone a false sense of what we are. Take the higher draft pick, replace half of the forwards with younger guys and Brad Richards, and inch closer to that elusive cup. Only Cally, Dubi, Ani, Step and Prust deserve to definitely be on this team next year.
Every other forward is either trade bait or a candidate for no contract. We are too slow up front and too lazy in some cases (Wolski and EC) and need a youth infusion up front similar to the one we are pushing on the backline. Next year, is not a cup year for us. Develop MDZ and either McI or Kundratek or Vtank and infuse Hagelin, Krieder, Thomas, Horak, Grachev and Werek (to take Boyle's spot because his puck and decision making skills are brutal) and Richards to that forward group and watch them grow. The tough decisions are Gabby, Avery, and Wolski. Everyone else, good riddance. LGR!!
