And this isn't intended as a knock on Sather. We were ahead of schedule this season, I can appreciate the patience. Patience, I will point out, that Lombardi showed for 5+ seasons when he stood fast on his offers for multiple stars. It's a fine line. A lot of us will agree that we are crossing that line. Lundqvist is peaking, our defense is young but that means "soon to be expensive", right Nashville? Richards and Gaborik are on the wrong side of 30, not over the hill but the window is narrowing. We can wait for the prospects to help, but will the help come too late? Is Callahan going to break down sooner than later?
Add Radulov, move out Dubi or AA. Sit pat otherwise until you know what Kreider, Stepan, Hagelin, one of Dubi/AA bring you next year. That might be your two 30 goal scorers in that group. Then add a steady, steady D-man. Playoff type. Hall Gill mold, Sydor type move. That's enough going into October. Get over the top in February, not July 1. Parise is nice, but not our issue, we have him. Maybe not as good, but certainly not as expensive.
