We cannot compete now BTW. You seen our left wing depth? Our right wing depth?
Fletcher keeps saying one thing but doing another. He knows he's under the gun to do something with this organization but he doesn't know what.
Our youth movement isn't going to replace Brunette or even Mitts.
Which move exactly did we mortgage the future? Chuck Kobasew's the only one, and that is a poor example because we traded a future 2nd for 2 years of a player in his prime(27-29) that had scored 20+ in 3 of the previous 4 seasons. Trading for a 24 year old Cam Barker wasn't mortgaging the future from Fletcher's perspective, because 24 is young.
We can compete now, for a playoff spot. We're not the least talented team in the league. We have solid RW depth if Clutterbuck's kept on the 3rd line. LW, well thats where we need an addition, we do have the cap-space, though the fits are limited in free agency.
