I agree...that's not a great well to spell his name. I'm not a huge fan of Stralman, relatively speaking, but I still think he's quite good, and perhaps it's just the pairing and chemistry that works well, but I've been more in the camp of trying to keep Staal over Stralman, although admittedly given where this team is in contracts it's handed out, I'm not sure they can afford Staal (although MSL comes off next season and perhaps someone cheaper waiting in the wings emerges next season, but that's a tough call).

Too many combinations of possibilities out there for me to pinpoint one I'd like. This team can survive without any one player not named Lundqvist, provided that player is adequately replaced somehow So I won't crucify Sather for not signing Stralman, or not trading Staal, or signing Stralman and trading Staal based on that one occurrence; I'll look at the entire plan, which means we may go through a couple lumps here before we see the team that begins the season.
