No paycut. We have plenty of cap room.

Jagr's deal may be done, but it doesn't mean he's signed. My hope is that we come to our senses before July 1st. It won't happen, but I can hope right?

It's just NOT good enough. It's pretty plain and simple. They need a significant upgrade in one of those defensive spots if there's going to be any sort of progress, or else it's going to be more of the same thing next season. Sure Meszaros was hurt most of the second half but he was a non factor in the first half.

I don't know how you could believe staying pat at defense to be a good idea.
Staying pat at defense isn't a good idea. No, we can't win with that defense when it's hurt. With Grossmann and Meszaros healthy? Maybe. Still, unlikely. I know.

However...

Sign Carle this year, make a run at Schultz, and draft a defenseman. Go after Weber next year. Streit, Enstrom, Edler, Vlasic, and Smid interest me as well should they make it to market.

There's no reason to overpay Suter, and less reason to worry should we not get him.
