Some of us (including me) are skeptical, pointing out that in six years this management team has NEVER COMMITTED TO YOUTH WHATSOEVER, so why are we to believe they'll start now? To some of us it reeks of management covering their butt, saying that while we're so bad now, help is eventually on the way, so sit back, wait, don''t criticize anything, and everything will be fine.

Others come on to defend Maloney, making fair points that the fire sale which started three years ago should just starting to make in impact in the NHL now, so we need to give them more time.

And what happens now? WE'RE TALKING ABOUT WHICH YOUNG KIDS SHOULD BE TRADED FOR PETER FORSBERG, AN OLD, SEMI-BROKEN DOWN PLAYER WHO BECOMES A FREE AGENT AT THE END OF THE SEASON!!!!!

Are you kidding me???

We're going to go back down that same path of destruction that we've been traveling on for a decade now!!! What happened to the youth movement? What happened to all the great kids that are coming up? What happened to 'we won't sacrifice the future for the present'?

AND WE'RE ACTUALLY COMING ON HERE DEBATING WHICH YOUNG PLAYERS SHOULD BE TRADED FOR THIS GUY!!!

How about none? How about we do what Maloney said we would do? Or are we all to agree that was just another bunch of BS for the stupid fans to swallow?

How much further is Sather going to drive us into the ground before he's done? He's pointing us in the direction of 5-10 more years of no hope whatsoever.

When do we agree Maloney lied to us?
If youth is traded for over the hill veterans
