AS opposed to a good team that will struggle to make the playoffs and come up short because management will not pay for that EXTRA player. The team:

Isbister Spezza Gaborik/Heatley
Pyatt Jokinen Czerkawski
Torres Connolly Bergenheim

Brewer Jonsson
Chara Mezei

Luongo

Oh Well ---I guess we have to be happy with a competitive team that will lose in the playoffs.
It would be 10 years and counting missing the playoffs if that was the team...Hell,Isles might not even be on Long Island anymore!
