oh and t-minus 3 ... 2 ... 1... until Matt Greene takes a roughing/holding/hooking penalty and all the usual suspects come out of the woodworks screaming ... "Greene you idiot", "Neanderthal", "You F'ing Moron", etc.

I already have a list of people in mind that I'm sure will be posting such.

Yep ... depending on his health condition going into next season, I see us only retaining 2 of these 3 - (Willie Mitchell, Rob Scuderi, Robyn Regehr), obviously if Mitchell can't go it's Scud's & RoaR, but if he's healthy then I think it's who will be cheaper to retain Scud's OR RoaR ? and if they know far enough in advance about Mitchell, can Lombardi work some sign and trade magic to get something back ? or does he just let one of them walk in UFA for nothing ?

Obviously Greene, Doughty are back ... and Voynov will get himself a nice payday ... and I think all the RFA's will be retained in some way or another, Muzzin for sure, but also A-Mart and Ellerby. I know it's cool to hate on the Kid, but Ellerby could be a cheap long term replacement for a Scuds or Mitchell type of D-man, and would be closer to developed product than Forbort would, who one would think is still 2-3 years away ?
