All the team had to do was bury Gomez. Burke would have done it. Sather would have done it.

Say what you will, but had we brought back those two on D we would have had the depth required to compete for the playoffs, especially considering Wisniewski alone with Subban on the PP would have vaulted us back into the Top5-10 PPs in the league.

BUT. What's done is done, and today we have a chance to draft ourselves are true difference maker for the next 10-15 years. Very exciting, and I'm pretty happy that it actually fell this way.
Gomez will get buried this upcoming season...Molson has no choice...
