Plus what do we have for cap room next year and when are the RFA's going to due for the pay raises?
Last thing we want is the headache Chicago had after they won the cup and had to ditch a lot of the depth on the team just to keep Toews, Kane, Keith signed long term along with Sharp, Hossa, and Seabrook.
Not to mention do we want another high priced contract when we are going to have 3 kids that deserve to be on top lines along with many of the other players we have? Zucker on the top. Coyle and Seto on the 2nd. Larrson and Clutterbuck with Brodziak on the 3rd. and Fourth Konopka, Rupp, and *insertscrubhere*
We need another Top 4 dman that actually play the position. If we are going to be serious about winning, we need to keep the opposition from scoring 3+ goals a night because we can't make a breakout pass to save our lives if it isn't Suter/Brodin/Gilbert making that pass from good defensive struggles along the boards or a blocked shot in front. Then again, I'm in the minority here that doesn't think needing to play like Chicago does and requiring 3+ goals a night to hold onto a win is really needed.
Yeah because the headache of having guys like that has lead them to consistent playoffs and a 12-0-3 mark thus far this year, why would we ever want such a thing.
Honestly though if we can get a player like Perry, who cares? Figure out the contract situation through trades etc. if needed. The defense isn't the issue. We're middle of the pack in goals against and dare I say our goaltending is average as well. If the Wild could get forwards to spend any extended amount of time in the offensive zone we would score more and be scored on less. It's that simple. Unfortunately we have no found that ability yet. A guy like Perry would help out immensely in that area. Unlike Heatley he is still capable of 50 goals with the right linemates. We need offense.
