Today our team got deeper in the bottom six, and we turned into a club that can grind other teams down (or at least not be grinded down as easily by some teams). We did not necessarily get much better offensively unless Trotz is able to play his offensive guys on more favorable shifts with his plethora of grit.
You could also replace that last word with one that rhymes and it still holds true.
A trade is coming, and maybe this means that Legwand is gone after this year. We have to many similar players
This. A million times this. At least I hope.
It's the only thing that even remotely makes sense in all of this. It's looking like Poile is stocking the cupboard with unspectacular, reliable-ish players - even overpaying to do so. The only logical reason is because some of our current assets may not be with us much longer.

I just got home and am getting caught up on everything. Not sure what to think of these signings. Almost looks like Poile paniced when Briere and Horton signed elsewhere. Stalberg and Cullen are ok signings. Hendricks is OK with me Poile said he wanted to get harder to play against. Nystrom- WTF. Money and term-
