Rupp - Boyle - Prust


Girardi - McD

Suter - Sauer

Eminger - MDZ

Once Staal returns:

Staal - Girardi

Suter - Sauer

McD - MDZ (or whoever)

Now that's a decent "D"...

GET'R DONE SLATS
No way should Staal get 2st pairing minutes ahead of Suter. Also, our forwards look like garbage. Hagelin on the 2nd line? Yikes. MZA? He deserves a shot but unproven. And the bottom 2 lines are terrible. As shaky as our D has been, our main problem (still and has been for years) has been lack of skill.

If we make any trades I want it for a cheap defenseman or serious offensive upgrade. I would look at Krecji, Eriksson, Bourque, somewhere along those lines. We need offense. When Staal comes back the d will be fine.

I say all prospects are up for grabs here too (in the right deal). Signing Brad and having Hank in his prime is win now mode. I just hope the office realizes this too. If a Kreider or Thomas is the difference between getting a Loui Eriksson or [insert veteran rental], I think you bite the bullet and do it. We're only 2-3 pieces away IMO.

For Suter, I go after him in UFA. No need to mortgage our offense for the year to get him.
