The point is that I am not willing to add or go give anything up for it. Not from the core. Every year we seem to always need one more offensive player. The next one you add, will inevitably als become "we need someone to play with x...".
Plus, if we get one to add with Gaborik, we look that much more attractive to Parise, because we could hold our own possibly vs. Crosby-Malkin-Neal
parise is not really an option since signing him to a $6m deal will cause hell. There is no NEED to add a sniper, if it comes at the cost of dismantling the core.
Too much belief in belief, sorry.
No, logical belief that people play to the numbers on the back of their card.
We need go way more than that, such is how abysmal is our PP.
Only scoring enough goals to be 15th or 16th in the league on the PP would make a big difference.
I would consider some for the right return.
Not being open to always getting the best deal is not optimally productive.
By and large, there is no realistic right return that will be available. Defensemen are much more harder to acquire than forwards. Top defensemen are even tougher. Young, top defensemen who will not have even reached their potential for a few more years, are even moreso.
The system makes them work harder, IMO.
Hence they are a hard working team. Period.
System has its pluses and minuses.
The system, like the components within it, can be improved.
One can say that about practially anything.
