Can't sign Jagr (apparently) because he's slow and can't keep up with our speed game. Even though he'd help the roster.

Don't make a serious push for Seguin because he likes to party and didn't dominate the playoffs at age 20. Even though he'd help the roster.

I mean seriously? We should be making hard pushes for all three of the above players, but no, they gotta be the perfect fit in every way, it's just stupid. Beggars can't be choosers.
FTFY

Completely agree, btw. Although when were we bashing Jagr? The only holdup I have with him is that he plays the wrong position. If Eberle can slide over, that's great, and I've heard that he plays on his off-wing anyways, so yeah.

We'd all like Milan Lucic, but it's about time we realized that settling for Kyle Clifford will still make this team better.

EDIT: I'm still on the Penner bandwagon.
