Surely management would get the point after those 3-4 games that our Defense without EJ is atrocious, and would move the necessary pieces to aquire a #1 Dman.


Avs games would actually start to become a comedy TV show without EJ in our lineup.
This is what I don't get...do folks really think getting a #1 dman is easy as picking up the phone and moving the right pieces? I don't believe there are a lot of teams right now that want to move one of their #1 dmen. So who is Sherm going to call? The Ghostbusters? The Coyotes could but won't unless it is for a gross overpayment. In all honesty, I'm not sure Duchene alone would get an upper level #1 dman...and that is what we need. Not another #3 who could play with EJ...we need an honest to goodness top pairing guy.
