The other two linemates are good, but without him, IMO, the team goes into a death spiral. Again, MO.
If you sell... you gotta sell and build for future. If we go on a losing streak, we could fall from the playoffs. With Gali, Murphy and Bouch going to the worlds perhaps, that could easily happen.
I can see K making a play for Sarault and one Murphy...they are missing a couple of pieces to their puzzle and a lot closer than we are. and they won't be back next year...
Not selling could be reminiscent of The Miller Years when he bought and we went south. Again... only ranting... and seeking comments.
We are not deep enough to legitimately contend imo. One top notch line, one good goalie, a couple good d and not much in the cupboard or others worth much in trades and one injury away from a spiral. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over yet expecting different results. I to would love a long po run but do agree we have made this mistake before in the not so distant past. Most would agree we don't want to go down that path again. Some tough decisions to be made. Short sightedness v planning for the future.
