We need an offensive defenceman a la Gonchar to help our PP, a sniper to play with Koivu and Zed at least. We gotta believe in our chances till the end of the season!!!!
Well people think differently. You apparently are ready to mortage the future to win now. I on the other hand am tired of the short term stop gap fixes and am willing to take some lumps to get this team to mature from within and progress to the point where Ottawa is. If you think we are just as good as Ottawa...well I have to disagree at this point in time. Three years from now we may well be, but not right now.

And by the way, I am not giving up on the playoffs. I just think we are going to have to win with what we have, that's all. I don't see any big changes coming, so we better make due for now with what we have.
