My point is that if you aren't gonna trade then fine but if you are then don't expect to be able to pull it off with spare pieces. It happened once with Dion Phaneuf because Sutter was a moron GM but it doesn't work when trying to get that centre. You have to either put up or shut up. I hate hearing about how we'll acquire so and so and then the media gets excited and is basically pencilling in Luongo or whichever other star into the line-up only to see it doesn't happen. Don't get me started on the free agency thing with Richards and co and how Burke's principles never let him pay for that talent.
Doug Gilmour.

You mad bro?
