With our refusal to rebuild and get very high first round picks, this is really the only way we were going to have a chance to contend while Lunqvist was still in his prime.
Totally agree.

Goalie isnt getting any younger, Core of the team is young, Defense is growing every month it seems, PP Need for a QB, Playmaker for Gaborik, #1 center...

This is more than 2 birds with 1 stone. Awesome fit, awesome hit. Couldnt be more thrilled. Every singing has its risks. Brad is a fitness buff, hell give us 5 years or maybe even 6 solid years - 4 of them elite.
