This team is not going to succeed in the playoffs this season. It's going to be very difficult to beat Detroit or Vancouver (who we will play if we get in) in a 7 game series, and adding Paul Gaustad at the expense of yet another #1 pick is just foolish.

Gaustad is a guy I would love to add this summer. He would be a massive upgrade at #3 center over Stoll.

The roster is pretty solid, just need a new system, new management team and new coaching staff that actually understands post lockout hockey. If we can get that this summer, plus add a player or two with the freed up money from Penner and Stoll we could be in excellent shape.
