Once you have a bad shoulder, it is usually for life.

I wish Regin the best. If he can give us top 6-9 production, we are obviously that much better for it.

If we can roll out 3 lines that can score consistently, then I agree, we do have a pretty good offensive team with significantly more depth than teams that you could argue are better.

We don't have a Stamkos, Crosby or Malkin, but Spezza is not far behind that group, especially if he has wingers that can finish.

The more options we have, the harder we are to shut down offensively.
That's about as fair an assessment as anyone has said about him, not calling him injury prone or saying he just had a streak of bad luck. All we can do is hope for the best. When he was on his game he was impressive and his linemates always benefited.

Now someone please kick Fehr and Bettman up the backside. They should just get wrecked on whiskey together, exchange a few "I love you man"s, and write up a new CBA on a cocktail napkin.

Sure, it would ruin the future of the league, but we'd get HOCKEY!!!
