We have injury replacement guys. I am not honestly to worried about it anyhow, because I cant go in to a season expecting to get decimated by injuries!
I am chilled out about the signing. I KNOW that the talks are today... What sets me off is TT more or less saying to Mcagg, that Emelin believe it when I see it... Then gets turned on for another one of his 'projects'. We know it's his crap, when they have footspeed. What I am saying is that if Emelin doesnt sign, we are tagged with yet another soft but speedy defenceman, who couldnt move a piece of gnat **** in front of Carey Price.
Defence is important, however it is MORE imperitive we lower the shots carey handles in a game. It's NOT important to add a Diaz when we have potentially Subban, and Weber, with even the option to bring back Wiz. Dont forget the AHL allstar Carle who needs to get his feet wet someday (instead of consistently being buried)
Streit and Weber Don't "suck" defensively sorry.
Who are our injury replacement guys? Brendan nash? Matt Carle? St Denis?
Your pissed off because TT doesn't want to get his hopes up until Emelin signs? Nowhere does it say hes not high on Emelin's skillset and what he brings to the team. OBVIOUSLY TT knows we need big physical Dman, Hence why he drafted Tinordi last year. Hes not incharge of the contract signings, hes just waiting for him to get signed like all of us.
And you say Diaz is not necessary because of Subban and Weber. What if hes better than Weber? Isn't upgrading the team the number 1 priority?
And what if hes better than Carle? I personally like Carle, but theres a very good chance this guy will be ahead of Carle on the hamilton depth chart to start the season. Another upgrade.
