If anyone thinks this team or this organization of players is a Stanley Cup contender should reconsider that stance. The likelihood of the players we have developing into superstars is minimal. This would open roster spots for 2013-14 for Zach Redmond and Mark Scheifele who would fit into very well into those spots. Bogo/Enstrom/Stuart/Buff can play big minutes on the point while Redmond continues to adjust to the NHL and the risk vs. reward of acquiring prospects and/or draft choices for those two, in my opinion, way outweighs the risk of the players we acquire being busts or Hainsey and/or Antropov taking their game to the next level.
Your joking right?
What is it with the fans on this board...we are third in the east and yet there are alot of people that are talking about being sellers at the deadline.
What the hell?
I don't know about you, but Id really like to see this team actually succeed and not be floundering anymore, that will do loads for this teams confidence and their drive and desire to win.
This shouldn't even be a discussion.
