I think we all look back at the trade deadline and complain we didnt get scoring. But the big miss was not getting a Dman that had some experience inthe playoffs and could be trusted to play 10-15 min. I know the prices were out of control. But Hal Gill would have been a huge plus for this team.
i think the lack of offense hurt us the most. i mean i never thought both gabby and richards would be invisible in the devil series
Richards no but Gaborik has been a bust in the playoffs before; take away his time and space and he is a $7.5 mil waste of space. All things considered and hindsight being 20/20, with Sauer being out so long, I guess we should have gotten an experienced d-man for sure.
