So when are we going to mature as a franchise on your trajectory curve?

I love how MSL is luck, where as finding Rinne in 8th rd is something that should hold over Poile until he wants to retire. His time in Calgary was all on the 4th line, it was no secret he had offensive ability, people were just concerned about it size.

I actually have it on good authority that we are we interested in signing MSL at the time. Why it didn't get done, I can't answer that, but it does not surprise me. We'd be looking at a different franchise right now though, that's for sure.

Tampa is on fire again obtaining talent offensive talent outside of the 1st rd. Johnson, Killorn, Palat. They don't even need Stamkos to be #3 in the East.
