If Markov would of been ready in october as hoped. You either trade Wisnieski or Spacek. Or you put them on the LITR, send them in Europe, AHL...

If you want to keep waiting for Markov... that's your thing.

I'm talking abotu efficient managing and how to not waste assets that are part of your club. We keep letting guys go on the UFA for nothing when they are still worthwhile player and we should be trading htem away instead. Everyone are always speaking that we need a Paul Holmgren... well that's the kind of managing he does.

You get your team ready for NOW and deal with issues when they arrises.
They said 9-12 months. So August to November.

He was skating back in May and June so no reason to think he wouldn't be ready to start the year. If anything in the past Markov has come back sooner than projected dates.

The medical side screwed it up, they should have found the inflammation and cause of it before December. That's what caused him to miss 70 games instead of 10-12.

If Holmgren was that smart they would have had a better goalie than Leighton the year they went to the finals. With "solid" goaltending they win the cup.

You make no sense at all. You can't just put guys like Wisniewski and Spacek on LITR for no reason. Spacek even if you were to send him to AHL or Europe still has full cap hit as a 35+.

Trading Wisniewski would have been hard at the money he cost, PLUs it would be hard to fit that type of contract under the cap in October as moost teams have already spent to the cap or their internal budget, not to mention trading a guy 2 months after signing him would be hard since most big contract carry NTC's nowadays and it would make it hard dealing with future players. All around bad idea.
