Last summer, did anyone really expect the pre-July 1st Ehrhoff rights deal and signing? Did anyone think about picking up Regehr and a second? He said they wanted to address defense and he actually did it with a prime point producer now on a long-term, super cap-friendly deal as well as a high-calibre shutdown defenseman who adds spine to a butter soft defense.
I don't always like Regier -- sometimes I downright hate his selling himself and the team well short or his valuation of his own assets... but the guy does make deals and does not do it by showing his hand. He said he's looking specifically for a forward, there will be a new forward. He's not going to give up the "who".
I'm just waiting to see what happens.
It's fun to throw What If's around. But, Regier's moves usually come out of thin air. So, let's wait and see what happens.
If he gets a top line guy, I'm going to guess that he does a deal with SJ, Colorado, or maybe Anaheim.
But, then he'll pull something off that absolutely nobody saw coming.....
And if the scouts on multiple teams don't see a huge gap this year in the top 10 to 15 guys, then I hope that they don't give up a ton to move up on draft day.
I like the idea of staying with the 2 1sts and the 2 2nds and just getting a bunch of guys.
