If anything now is the year for these guys to do it because all we have is an aging Timonen in front of them on the depth chart.

I agree that if there wasn't going to be anyone out there next year, spending $6mil on Timonen for a year is better than spending $5.5 mil a year on a Matt Carle type player for 5 years.

I think this team has 2 glaring holes that are going to hold it back, a legit #1 Dman, and a 1st line goal scoring forward. I still think we may have traded that forward this past offseason for a guy who isn't going to be that defenseman.
i agree with you...JVR was the better player. Schenn looks to be a nice solid #3 for us...but JVR has more talent.
