Predicting who's going to have the hot goalie and luck is purely crystal ball material that shouldn't be considered.
Now I do agree with you that the Isles could use someone like Warrener. But wargame this: make a reasonable trade to Calgary for a guy like Warrener, look at the make-up of the Isles, and objectively consider if they'd make a cup run. I don't think it's in the works this year.
Agree with your points but I think the isles do indeed have a run in them IF they can get a little tougher. You would'nt have thought the ducks from last yr or the hurricanes from the yr before could make a run either--anythings possible and I beleive the isles are not that far off. Alot depends on Dipietro of coarse. I think the top 4 all play fairly similar to one another and I think we can upgrade the d. Hey how about McKee?? He was benched for two games is he on the outs. Parrish or Jonsson for McKee??
