Yes, I miss Prust already.
Glass would have been the better fit than Asham...I just think that Sather takes the easy way out with these type of signings...Brasher, Rupp, Asham....when there were younger, hungrier options available.
I thought the Rangers could have entertained the thought of signing Carkner as the 6dman, instead of bring back a guy like Gilroy who will do nothing for us.
In the Boston game...when Rupp fought Thornton and Bickel fought Campbell, it left Lucic to run around like a mad man...we have no answers for that.
We might have size on the 3rd line and rupp and Asham on the 4th but Halepern has been a complete waste...isn't he a faceoff specialist...why bring in this old tired guy for the 4th line...a lot of fans thougt this was a great move...i look at it as a move that is going to have to be corrected soon. The Pens have Vitale who was all over the ice...the Bruins have Campbell...
The Stars traded Mark Fristic for a 3rd...that is a deal we should make...brings size and can give us 12-16 minutes a game...only under control for this year.
Nick Foligno was available...
