That is an enormously biased post!

"Simmonds can score 20" you say that like that is his potential. He scored 28 two seasons ago and was on pace to do the same last season. He was also on pace to score 60 points while playing a true power forward game.

Coburn is a legitimate top 4 d-man on any team......that my friend is not mediocre.

This deal is obviously never going to happen but I guarantee you if Holmgren ever offered that to Bergevin the answer would be an instant and emphatic yes!
