What does the end of the world mean to you? Flaming fires from hell and various people rising to clouds? No, that probably won't happen if Suter doesn't resign.

But if he walks and we do nothing to replace him, I have little doubt we'll take a step back. And that's just dealing with 1 of our 15 UFA/RFAs.

Poile has not made a significant offseason addition via UFA or trade since he signed Jason Arnott SIX YEARS AGO. Sergie Kosistynen would be the next closest thing to a significant addition. After that, you're looking at Jack Hillen territory.

Do I hope Poile can get a couple decent UFAs and maybe even get creative with trading? Hell Yes! But I have my doubts-- it's Poile. The only time he typical making moves is at the deadline when prices are high, creativity isn't need (highest bidder wins), and players don't have much time to gel before the playoffs.
