who didn`t fit into his long term plans , weren`t worth the money , etc..
He made a major splash by getting a top 3 Dman in Neidermayer , and resigning
a key vet in Selanne at the right price, ( he has played over his head , at 36
he probably wont do this next year ) He devloped a hard working skilled team with
the right componenets moving ofrward . He can now move Gigurerre for some hlep , knowing his young goalie has played great . We have started the path with kids
slowly this year , and hope he gives them a bigger chance to shine next year .
Wow imagine if the habs had neidermeyer and Sellanne
