Burke should resign between periods. The team has quit on the management.
lol are u serious? The team has no heart they have shown that since the all-star break and tonight is a prime example of that. No forward toughness what so ever guys like Army have useless since signing here. There is no spark plug for the team at least Colton Orr provided that and seriously 5 mins a night is not going to kill us, I would prefer a legit heavyweight over Jay any day.
I didn't know we have Grigo and Galy locked up.
Colborne, Kadri and Ashton are all projected to be solid second line players. I don't know where you got the info from.
The statement "we don't need more of them" means that we need legit top line talent. We have no chance of getting that centre by tanking.
All the legit talent in this team is about to peak in 3-4 years. Don't see where I am wrong.
Firstly, you said "fringe 1st line" so that's where I got it from.
Secondly, we do when you're as awful as we are right now. Clearly.
Have you read up anything on Grigs or Gally? Both have a very good chance at being very good NHL centres. Don't know how much you know about them but at the very least they give us a chance at a top line franchise centre, of which we have nothing even remotely close right now. I know we're not locked to get them - which is why I want us to keep dropping so we have a chance.
And to the last line, I assumed you meant peaking now, not 3-4 years.

No, it doesn't - you're right.

really, who can now argue that trading kessel and phaneuf for some draft picks or blue chip prosepcts (mmmmmm chips) is not a bad idea? oh and some goaltending. toqueah Rhask would have looked good in the crease
