no 7th defenseman
Not only does your trade leave us w/ Lilja starting every night, it leaves us incredibly thin in the case of injury. If one of our guys goes down, do we recall Matt Walker? If we do, one of our rivals could claim him on re-entry waivers and put us in a serious bind.
I apologize for overreacting, but I just didn't see what was so fascinating about Umberger. He's not a world-beater by any stretch of the word, he has a pretty hefty cap hit, and we are already leading the NHL in goals. The forwards have been fine... we're good there.
Again, I apologize for overreacting / borderline flaming. It was inappropriate of me. I should have tried to explain more calmly.
Honestly though, I don't think us and CBJ are good trade partners @ all.
I agree, and it's cool, I expected for some interesting commentary
I just figured of all their forwards aside from Johanson, Umberger made the most sense. We should be pursuing trade options with teams like StL, Van, and Nsh...teams with fairly deep defensive groups/defensive prospects.
