So, while Sather's been dicking around on the phone with McPhee for the past 3 days, he's foresaken the real root problems of the TEAM and failed to negotiate with anyone on possible solutions for those problems once again. It's Bure, Kovalev, Carter, Poti, et al all over again.

You guys can all sit giddy with anticipation about the Jagr era migth bring, but I'm dumbstruck at the fact that THIS is Sather's answer to a horribly constructed team.
Melrose the team has improved with this deal. Have we addressed our biggest, but the team is improved. We just dealt Anson Carter for Jaromir Jagr, straight up. I don't think we'll miss Anson that much. As for our other concerns....let's wait and see, good NHL defensman don't grow on trees. Sather wanted Jagr before we even traded for Lindros, so you don't know that this is his answer for our defense.
