I agree we shouldn't be shopping him by all means but the reason I didn't list him in my untouchables is I think ehrhoff and sekera are more vital to our success than Myers is

Optimism! Sounds like you've been into your basement for a few bottles...

I kind of feel the same way. I really feel like this offseason's going to be different.

Meh...they're at different points in their careers. Sekera and Ehrhoff are in their prime. Myers is not even close to his yet.

Yep. The team, when healthy, was pretty good. What they need to do is find a way to improve the overall talent and competitive level while getting bigger/more skilled, at least in terms of the lineup. Coaching and development still needs work, but the new folks are clearly not the same as the BTG/LFQ era.

Sekera is still young, ehrhoffs in his prime though, I'm just saying who knows how good Myers will be? I thought by this season he'd be in Norris talks after his rookie year. I know for sure what we are getting from sekera and ehrhoff, we need change and I know they aren't the problem, that's why they were the only d listed as don't trade for me

if the "you know who's" are still around, things will remain worse then they potentially could be

I have hope, Jame. I'm on that boat. Change the culture.

I believe in Darcy I'm worried about lindy not wanting change though and he has a voice in the changes made with this team

And this, ladies and gents, is why being a buffalo sports fan ****ing sucks balls. Hairy, unsightly balls. This was the third game I missed all year, and thankfully, it seems, or I might be balder than I'm currently getting.
