we will do the same as always. we will squeak into the playoffs in around 6th place.. (have my doubts if we even get in) .. we will then face a tough opponent and have an early exit. trotz and poile will then get kudos for "getting the most out of so little" .. we'll be drafting mid to late in the first.. wont get any help offensively. no free agents will want to sign here cause its Nashville. we will be in the same spot next year and ill be shouting the same damn things. people like you and 101 can bash me, i truly dont give 2 ****s. im not sure if some of yall are still in "don't want to lose the team" mode. but im sick of the same **** every year. YES, we are beyond blessed with such a well run organization but i want more. im tired of the current state.. same crap, different year. i have watched this team for a very long time and the NHL, and I think both you and I know that we are multiple pieces away from being a real contender. unless rinne turns to JS Giguere. im calling it like i see it.
I can't disagree with you at all and your spot on. So we lost Suter and New Jersey lost Parise and they still advance we don't have guys who put in goals like they do. They don't have an arsenal but they have character guys who score goals in tough situations. We still have Legwand who gets a pass from the coaches why I can't figure it out. He just skates around and not involved in the play makes bad passes and he still get shifts.Fisher has turned into Legwand. These are our two top centers. Enough said Both at their age and their productivity should be third line at best. We have a great goalie and the top defensive players in Weber and overall good defense but they have to perfect most of the time for us to win. Suter and his salary left so the money that we would have paid him is still here. Why can't we get some offense with that money. I'm not going to name names because I'm not Poile and don't know whose available or who could be had at the right price. That's his job to make those deals and make them count. But the more things try to change the more they stay the same.
