I don't see these promising farm prospects. I really don't. Our system, is not what it was 4 years ago. We have a couple guys that could be 2nd pairing dmen and 2nd-3rd line forwards. I don't think too much of our prospect core right now.
Richards s in his 30's. So in Henrik. I'm not an alarmist, i'm not Neil Smith. But I think that we need to prioritize each season with the intent of winning the cup that year. That means not standing pat at the trade deadline. (John Scott?) That means filling the roster with competition, even if it means bumping players down a line. We need to focus on getting ourselves the best shot at a cup, and not the best chance at being a 6th place team for 8 straight seasons.
