Halpern has been very good.
Besides him, we took on Asham, Powe, Pyatt, Nash, JT Miller and Chris Kreider. Seven players. What, five-six new forwards on the roster on avg? That's about 3 too many...
Richards has been here a year. Hagelin has been here less than a year. Stepan is still what barely 23. 2/3 of the lineup hasnt been here for two season.
Slats just screwed up tremendously. It's really armature hour on a regular basis with him behind the wheel.
I saw HFD play the other night. Not much hockey being played down there. Two guys on the top line who fall short of Aaron Voros in terms of hockey sense, in Mashinter and Palmieri. Jean who got some raw ability but just is miles behind in terms of playing with a purpose. An avg prospect in Yogan. One good line (Haley-Tessier-Thomas).
Then I saw PHX-EDM. PHX is such a well built team. The core is built of prudently picked players nobody else really wanted. Picked for certain roles in their game plan.
Who is picking players for us? Torts? Obviously not? Slats? God help us. The lawyers? (gretzkys agent or the NBA cap guy? Probably. The armature guy? Yeah he only got a few thousand players to watch per year...
