Great players, I've enjoyed watching them develop, but really Ryan - signing a contract will be a distraction? To whom? Only distraction is wondering whether you got as much money as Weber will get?
I agree totally... they don't appear to be willing to lead the team.

i think poile has to think about re tooling the team without both of them and what it is going to look like in the future.
i know he has said he won't trade suter away...
but he needs to have the plan in place. i think it hamstrung us too much last summer with the weber blindside to have any effectiveness in trading around the deadline.
frankly, i think it hinders bringing in any forwards before the deadline, cause we can't afford to trade any of the young d away.
