Yes, Laich was dramatically overpaid, and you simply do not sign a grinder to a long-term deal.
BUT... when he's on his game, he's a darn good grinder. If we could ever get him to give 100% on every shift, he might actually be worth what he's being paid.
As for the other moves, I like em, especially the return of JH. The late game face-off improvement by having him back will pay instant dividends.
As for Cocoon, all we need is a year or 2. The other 2 ought to be fully ready to assume the duties by then.
BB? Yeah, still the coach, but on a short rope, I'd wager. Anything less than a great start and it wouldn't surprise me if the plug is pulled on him.
Good moves the off-season or not, if Ted truly wants a Cup, I don't see us going much farther with McPhee if we falter.
That's cool, BTCG. You have more patience than I do with Ted and McPhee, but I appreciate you being intelligent and benevolent about it.
I supported McPhee for years. Regrettin' it. LOL
