I disagree on the cup aspirations comments. When you have Rinne and Weber, you have an easy argument that your team is cup capable. Add a FA or two, get healthy, make a trade or two, or some combination of these things and this team is drastically different on the ice. Gonchar would stabilize this defense, add an asset to be moved to the trade bin, and solidfy our hopes as a solid playoff contender.

This team is better than people give credit. The problem this year was new system, rash of injuries, young players with mediocre success, and a shortened season that never got off the ground. This team will be better next year with zero additions made, much less adding a guy like gonchar, possibly drafting barkov, inserting forsberg, etc.

This is an attractive place to play for these reasons and an organization known for its stability and work ethic. Add in no income tax ....
