Replacing Clutterbuck/Bouchard/Cullen with Granlund/Veillieux/Dowell is not going to get you into the playoffs.
you do know backstrom isnt young anymore right? hes not the same goalie he once was in 06-07
he got his 4 year 24M deal right after he came off his 3 best seasons, hes obviously gonna get a huge paycut
I would not be shocked to see Gilbert back in Edmonton. No risk for one year. He is a decent if unspectacular dman. Needs to be playing 18 minutes and none on the PK to be at his best. MacT didn't dislike his game at all.
someone mentioned about pmb being replaced... I dont even think pmb has played 4 full seasons within the last yr... I rather take a prospect for the season and give him a chance to prove himself then pay pmb 3-4 mill only to play 25-50% of the season to me not worth it at all
