I am fine giving him this year. No problem. No one was born a Stanly Cup winner. All were once first time winners.

We have a solid team. A solid youth movement. Some key pieces.

Come trade dealine time. Where do we go? Trade a prospect for some immediate help? Trade a vet for some youth. Fletcher is hand cuffed right now. Going into this season his biggest worry would be which farm hand do i trade, now its where do i go in general?

There are buyers and sellers and people with their hands in their pockets. We are going to be that guy again.

Wasn't it Walz for a first.
Gaborik for nothing
Rolston and Demo let go for nothing
Chris Simon signing
Brunno leaves for nothing

All those moves were based off of a lack of direction. Youth or now. We got very little in return. We payed for it in the future. With no reults in the then present.


In this direction we are not doing well. I would be fine trading a kid for a vet to help now or a vet vet for a kid to help later. Which direction are we going?

I am tired of being average.
