Hell we have 3 3rd lines right now. What we have to sell an offensive forward is the fact that he could be the missing piece. He could be the offensive catalyst while Forsberg/Beck develop into 40 point guys next year. He can be the one who pushes Wilson and Hornquist into 60 point players. You absolutely play the ego card and sell that. None of it is false. doesn't matter if it is a wing or a center. Just a good solid 50-60 point forward. you sell the belief that the youth of this team in Wilson/Hornquist/Forsberg/Bourque/Beck/Smith can produce this year. you sell Aberg/Watson/Leipsic/Sissons/Budish are going to be able to contibute in 2-3 years.

Nashville has plenty to sell. Some of you just can't see the forest thru the trees here and look down the road a bit. Our young kids are a good blend of big power forwards and skill guys. Our d-corp outside of Ellis is big and could be huge down the road. They can all move the puck a bit.

so maybe only one thought.
Agree 100%. We have plenty to sell and Poile needs to pull the "you could be our guy" card because frankly whoever it is would be along with Weber, Rinne, etc. I wish FA's would realize that we have everything to win except the huge offense. They just need to actually join the team and help the rest of the players work towards it instead of hopping on some other team's train that is already full of people who can/will win a cup.
