I agree, I see Clowe being retained. His type doesn't come around very often, and the fact that he got an "A" over someone like Pavs tells us a lot. Let's brace ourselves for a Havlat-esque contract, though.
As for the re-build, I wager that the first few months of the 13-14 schedule will determine much of the franchise's direction. Selling off Boyle and Marleau could sure help with recruiting talent to play with #'s 8 & 39.
Yeah, Greiss doesn't really have a place in the org once Stalock is healthy and back on track (which he seems to be). I wonder if he'll be traded for a decent pick. I think Ben Bishop got a 2nd round pick from Ottawa, maybe we could get a 3rd for Ein.
Clowe's going downhill fast. He's falling apart, he can't skate, he's King Giveaway, I honestly think we should trade him now.
You're looking at a retool (keeping Thornton). I'm looking at a total rebuild. Like Tank-for-McDavid kind of rebuild. Selling off Thornton, Marleau, Boyle, Clowe, Murray, Havlat, etc.
We've gotten some solid offers for those guys from fans on HF. I mean, Murray for a late 2nd, sure. But we've gotten Teravainen+ for Marleau, Paajarvi+ for Boyle, Grigorenko++ for Thornton. Those types of deals would give me a lot of faith in this organization. In my opinion, the window is closed.
