It'd be well deserved, haha.

For the record, I agree. I thought ET was an average hockey player who just never grew into his own player. He never showed me anything on the ice. But then again - I was never a fan of Malone until he proved me wrong.

But Strait, Lovejoy, Letestu, Armstrong, Tangradi, and soon to be DJ... I won't miss them one bit.
I think we might miss Strait - he always impressed me with his steady play at the NHL level. We'll see.

But my reservations about the whole Lovejoy/Strait thing notwithstanding, I don't think it's an organizational concern. I feel lesser lights should have to prove themselves over extended periods in limited roles before they make any team, but especially contenders.

Guys like Bennett and Despres, you live with their NHL growing pains because of the talent. Despres will make a goof one shift, then the next he'll bury a guy in the corner and gallop down the ice to pot a goal. Cream rises. Net gain.
