I would like to see Tambo get creative. Sather got Mac-T from Jail and Ruotsalainen from finland. Both players were impact and great support that contributed to Stanley Cups. The posters that claim "where do we get these guys" or "these guys don't grow on trees" are short sighted. Good managers find players other then trading or drafting.
Having said that, our drafting and trades have been just O.K. and we have not found any gems (aside from eberle at 22-1st round). Tambo will earn his pay this year or fire him, Lowe, and for gods sake as much as Mac-t helped us at Center, Don't promote him !!
Our development on the farm still needs to improve with better picks or development of rough diamonds. That 165 center they brought up does not need to be down there developing, get that 220 lbs center that has some developing capability for the farm. By the way, what is Green doing on the farm team, he's our big center that is what 35 years old and marginal 4 th line bubble player in his prime. These guys are taking up spots for nothing.
