What if we could get a Brandom Gormley for him? I want us to have an amazing core of players for the next long while.
Not just finishing between 7th and 11th
Need experience too... What when Alfie retires?
You need veterans to support younger players and I think Michalek is a pretty good player to have around, with his work ethic and intangibles. Also, he can score... Only Spezza has scored more for the Sens in the last 3 years...
Spezza : 78 goals
Michalek : 75 goals
Alfredsson : 61 goals
We need his goal scoring, don't be fools.
I'm not saying "sign him for another 10 years", just keep him while we need him, which might be for a few more years...
Finally, why get Gormley? Trading our best scoring winger for a defensive prospect would be downright stupid.
We have Erik Karlsson, Jared Cowen, Cody Ceci for the top-3... Just need to fill the bottom-3, which shouldn't be too hard with Wiercioch, Borowiecki, Blood, Claesson, Wikstrand, Gryba, Boyle, Wideman, Fransoo... plus Free Agency and Trade Market... Our defense core is already set : Cowen-Karlsson-Ceci
