1. We're always going to remain a mediocre team in the 6,7,8,9 position by the time our young players get good enough we have to keep trading the vets and start he process all over again. But if we could have all the players starting at relativly the same age and maturing all at the same time we could have an Ottawa or Vancouver situation. That means guys like Smith and Salo should be traded for younger cheaper guys.
2. If we do miss all or most of the year next year wouldn't it make more sense to have all the young guys we can and the lowest salary possible? We want to coe out of armaggedon in the best shape possible.
3. If we do have a fire sale and let the kids go for it we could have a chance at Ovechkin who could be the final piece of the puzzle.
It's definetly something to think about.
Yes thats it. Tank the season so we might get Ovechkin. I'm sure the 15,000 people who bought season tickets will love that.
