anyone who thinks gainey has stopped working the phones is nuts ...gainey has never been one to tell the press his every step ...or any step for that matter. he may not be able to get a deal done ,,,,but he will be there till the deadline
It's not like the big name players on the market can be had for O'Byrne and a 3rd round pick. The Prongers, Jokinens and others would cost MULTIPLE young, roster players that you'd all whine about if they were traded.
Then again... perhaps he's just playing it safe by letting people think that nothing else will happen... that way if nothing happens, no one can complain, and if something happens, everyone is surprised... it's a win/win situation...
I think that we have a solid team and we have the posibility to go far in the playoffs with the tem we have. I don't think that an aquisition is necessecary but it might help though. That being said, I would be toatly satisfied with the team we have in the playoffs and that doesn't mean that I will be content with a first round exit. All I'm saying is that think that the team is better then his record shows and anything can happen in a playoff series.
