Those are his guys so expect we'll live or die with them.

In the meantime the team has three really talented centres, a tough mother****ing (even point producing!) sherrif, will pick up Bourque and Diaz @ the deadline and we have the luxury of having a #1 defenceman in Subban/Markov on the ice for almost the entire game.

Bit of a shaky patch for the team but it should be smoothed over as these next 2 games are very winnable and all of a sudden the team's looking at a 3 game streak.. but when the time comes to make a roster move or two hopefully Bergevin doesn't tinker with it too much, your first "tinker" of moving Cole may not hurt too much as the East is laughably bad except for Boston/Pens/Devils.. have to wait a couple of weeks for a few Western conference teams to fall out of the race and that should give us a better idea of what players we can hope to bring in.. don't see anyone in the East wanting to help us/too many players from the bottom feeding clubs that are very interesting
i would still trade gionta for the right price.
