We all see how our defense is playing this year. Last year we couldnt stop anybody from hanging out in front of our net, this year the problem seems to be the mobility of the defense and their ability to make a solid outlet pass. If kimmo leaves next year, what the hell do we do? We are kind of already shy at wing depth, possibly (not that i agree with it but) briere being bought out, where does this team go in the future?

I think gostisbehere will be great and protected in this new nhl, but hes at least 2 years away. What can we possibly do? I dont see us making a big splash of a trade for a defensemen seeing at how thin we are on the wings if we swap some of them for just one defencemen. Maybe we can sign corey perry this offseason then maybe ship out voracek? I honestly dont see us in good shape defensively after this year. I really dont want to trade any of our forwards.

Thoughts?
I agree with you. We have a good core of young players and I would like to see them grow together. I for one would not want to see any of them moved. This may turn out to be another 2006-2007 season but lets see how this turns out. If down the road we do not improve in the standings then maybe I would move older players for younger players or picks. But that is for another time. If Perry hits the FA market he will command major major bucks so I do not see happening. Hang in there and hope that the boys put in a good effort and beat the rags Thursday.
