Very satisfied with Foligno who is scoring at a 48 pts pace. That was good for 93th in NHL forwards scoring last year... 93 / 30 = that's like 3rd or 4th most productive forward on any team on average... He is our 4th most productive forward this season, on a team that is currently ranked 7th in goals scored per game. That's good.
And people still complain. He has a 1.2 cap hit! Fire Murray!
In before massive whining when he gets a 2.5 cap hit on his next contract

That doesn't mean Gilroy will succeed with the Sens but IMO he has a better NHL future than Brian Lee (at least in terms of numbers, $ earned and impact on a team's blueline)
I don't hate Lee or anything and I wish him well, but that's about it.
