I just wouldn't trade Couts for anything, he's going to be a great player.
I'm not worried about getting a 1D anymore. Just throw out Lilja, Manning, Lauridsen, Gustafsson and Konan and we can't lose - even to playoff-bound teams.
Mason was great when we needed him to sieve. I don't see the point of keeping Bryz now. It'll just be a circus. Go with Mason. Buy out Briere and Bryz. Sign a vet to support Mason.
We had a chance to pick up a great Dman. Stupid win tonight cost them 5 draft places. Worst two points in franchise history. Win when it means worse than nothing. Choke when it matters. Well done. What a disaster.
Now we'll get a longer term prospect instead of Nurse, Zadorov or Ristoflex (hey, everyone else on here who hasn't seen him play for 5 minutes has a nickname for him, why can't I?). New Jersey will take Zadorov for sure, so there's not a chance we'll get him.
We'll end up taking a smurf forward instead of the huge, talented Dman we needed desperately.
Great way to end the season.
On the bright side, Akeson, "Giroux's buddy" looks like a sure-fire 82 goal man!
Hmm....Schenn, Konan, Lauridsen, Lilja, Gustafsson, Manning, and Mason > Pronger, Timonen, Coburn, Carle, Parent, Krajicek, Leighton?????
