definitely NEITHER Roy or Lemieux.

Mario missed the playoffs his first four or five years in the league, despite his dominant scoring. Patrick Roy wouldn't do much with that team in front of him, except maybe be the first goalie to get an instigating minor, major for fighting and suspended for biting one of his own defensemen!

Isles need TWO "very good" forwards and TWO "very good" defensemen (one might be Visnovsky if he shows up) and they can make the playoffs. IF they stay healthy. IF Nabby plays the way he can.

Was watching Minny yesterday, boy does Parise and Suter make a world of difference. So now Granlund get to start his rookie year with Setoguchi and Heatley or Matt Cullen. Granlund looked very good, better than I thought he'd play early in his NHL career. Such a smart player, great offensive instincts and vision. They look really good, all for the low low price of $200Million dollars
