I give Torts 2-3 more games before he is fired. (if the team does not improve)
There aren't any available for a reasonable price most likely.....

They have been having talks with Stralman and they have Woywitka and Eminger who are okay 3rd pairing d-men. The only player really playing above his head is MDZ.

I would love to see:

Boyle-Richards-Callahan
Dubinsky-Stepan-Gaborik
Wolski-Anisimov-______
Fedotenko-_______-Prust

Insert whatever players you want to in the open slots.

I feel, and have felt, that Gaborik and Richards will/would not click. They both need the puck to be successful. Its the same reason I feel/felt Nash and Carter will/would not work.

Spread it out and let them play with players who can create space and retrieve pucks. Hell, try Avery on that top-line.

Also, please get rid of Wolski and Christensen.....
