so, in about another 50 AHL games and 100 NHL games if not sooner- I believe Spooner will be the answer to this; kid really moves the puck and knows what to do it...we need to be patient here, and we should be very happy for a number of years
I agree completely. Spooner will play a huge role in fixing the PP deficencies. Also, Hamilton & Seguin will be gaining experience along the way.

However, I'd still look for a Recchi-esque acquisition before the trade deadline. I like Jagr because he loves to shoot, uses his big frame against the boards to draw defenders & perhaps freeing up another skater for a shooting lane. I also think there may be some chemistry between he & Krejci that is worth exploring. Low-risk, high-reward.
