You have Peka, Webs, Wilson, Josi, Horny, and FF for a long time now signed. Nashville is close, has a great growing fan base, and a great place to live to boot. You have a chance to bring the cup to Nashville for the first time. The game has changed in Smashville folks.
I think he was speaking more to the history of floating, zero defense, not trying in the regular season of late and a skillset that seems to be declining rapidly...
you don't make an NHL roster floating, playing zero defense and having a terrible skillset. now does he skate as hard as he can 100% f the time, probably not, but show me one player who does and I bet you can find film of him floating watching the play. As far as the defense-Steve Sullivan was allergic to the defensive zone and he was just fine here.
Don't forget about Stalberg in CHI. A change of scenery and ice time i think he could be a nice addition
Nooooooooooo. No No No No No No No.
This is a guy that is on a team in the Finals and can hardly get in the game. How many games has he been scratched for during the playoffs? He's fast, I get it. He's got some skill. I get it. Does he have any grit to his game? Does he have the ability to play playoff style hockey. Quenneville doesn't think so. I am dead against Stalberg as a possibility. There are rookies and young players of him playing bigger minutes. He is not an answer. He is just more of the same.
People want guys from this free agent class and this is one of the worst I've ever seen. We're better off letting the young players develop and give them minutes as opposed to overpaying for anyone out there who is basically what we already have a ton of, second and third liners.
