[QUOTE=SmokeyClause]I expected them to be better, but this cannot come as a shock to many out there. You cannot rely on major free agents to perform. They just don't have a great success rate. When your two best Dman are Adam Foote (whose adaptation to the new NHL was in question once the rules were announced) and Bryan Berard, you aren't going to compete for the playoffs too often.

I thought they upgraded their D but the trade of Spacek for Berard was at best a lateral move and at worst a downgrade. That leaves them with only Foote as the upgrade. That's not a good D.QUOTE]


what about Hulse-Delmore?!



seriously though, I have some weird sort of compassion for our expansion brethren. I hope they turn it around.
