AND we have the best goalie in the world.

there's no doubt that a full-year lockout hurts us more than most teams since we're the best projected team. next year we have the potential of losing a big impact guy to cap, and that will suck.

edit: lw we have hagelin/kreider/nash... that's an extremely strong top 3 lw on any team in the league. rupp is def good at what he does for the 4th. unless callahan is bumped to our 3rd rw and nash plays 2nd rw... we're strong on that side. most teams don't have 'incredible' minor depth.
Exactly. Well put.

This team is stacked by the standards of the league and its going to be impossible to keep the big names together as soon as next season and it will definitely be impossible to keep them together the following season cap wise. This would be a really good year to, you know...be played.
