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
Are you expecting us to make a push for the cup in the next two seasons? Are you sure Murray is going to resign Milan? Are you sure we will be able to afford him if the cap goes down like the owners want?

I like Michalek. He is one of my favourites. I understand that hockey is a business and players are your assets. Michalek had a career year last season. His value is at an all-time high. I gave Gormley as an example. He is going to be a stud of a defenceman.

Yes we have Karlsson, Cowen, and Ceci as our top 3. Now add Gormley.

Cowen/Karlsson
Gormley/Ceci

That is a solid top 4.

All the others you listed can fight for 5,6.

If you want some vet leadership, then bring someone in when we make our cup run.
