Many of you guys would blamed Gainey for not signing Hossa or Rolston.
But, when you look at it :
- AK should get over 60pts next season.
- SK should get around 50pts nex year.
- Plek should get around 60-65pts.
- Tanguay should get around 65-70pts.
- Chipchura will get more points than Smoke.
- O'Byrne will get a much bigger impact.
I mean, we have already young pretty good forwards in our team. Our team will be better than next year because these young players will take another step.
Look at it :
Tanguay - Koivu - UFA scorer
AK - Plek - Kovy
Higgins - Chipchura - SK
Lats- Lapierre - Kosto/Bégin
Look at this roster : It's better than last year. I think we should get a scorer on the 1st line like Bertuzzi or Demitra.
Ryder + Streit + 1st rounder this year, 2nd rounder next year
Tanguay, 5th rounder this year and 3M cap space.
Question is, are we actually a better team after the trade? Ryder didn't play much last year but Streit did.
What kind of messed up reasoning is this?
Ryder and Streit not comming back have nothing to do with getting Tanguay. None of the two would be back even if we didnt trade for Tangs.
If you still really want to have fun with that then I suggest you start with Pittsburgh going back to the Hossa deal.
Start with Hossa, Armstron, Christensen,1st rounder, Esposito,Malone,Ruutu,Roberts for nothing ?
