To get those sorts of prospects you essentially have to be very bad or be very bold
very bad= pittsburgh
very bold=boston and philly
I dont want to see Detroit become the next Edmonton of the West.
I just want to see KH take a bit more aggressive posture.
Through out an offer sheet
Be aggressive on the trade front for yong disgurntled higher end players(el nino anyone)
Make the tough decision before the aging player makes it for you. Do NOT resign Cleary or Miller, buyout CC and Eaves, waive Mursak and trade Quincey at this trade deadline for a pick(even IF we are a playoff team) and promote and play some youngsters in important roles(Nyquist, Tatar and Sheehan)
Offer sheets are a waste of time - they either get accepted by the team holding the rights immediately, or you have to offer SO MUCH that its an insane overpayment while giving up picks. I think if offer sheets actually worked more teams would do it.
