So what now? (mod: how to respond to Suter/Parise signing by Wild)
With Minny solidifying itself as a force in the West by signing Parise and Suter, what do the sharks need to do to get everyone excited for next season? With only Burish signed, the consensus seems to me that most Shark fans don't want Rick Nash? Who would be your top 6 guy to go for in trade? Is Semin a viable option for a top 6 guy?
I think we're snookered. We seem to want to upgrade our top 6, but we don't seem willing to get rid of any of our young assets to do so, we have very little in the system of value and it's doubtful we move a blueliner to get a forward back either (of significant value).
I think we should try to move Marleau but I know it's not happening. As such I expect Demers/Murray to get moved for a 3rd line forward and that will be about it.
1) Start Drinking
2) Hope DW signs 2 decent UFA wingers (are their any left on the market :-(
3) Have another Drink
4) Hope DW pulls a deal out of his ass, and gets us a couple of decent wingers w/o giving up core players
5) Drink some more.
