Nuck fan here. Sorry to ask after a tough loss but I saw some interest in Lu. I understand he doesn't have the greatest contract in the world, but he's still in his prime and an excellent starter. What would you guys be willing to offer?
I'm thinking something like a bottom 6 roster player, one of your goalies and futures?
Man good thing we got rid of Semin. Now we can just focus on playing hard and giving our all game in and game out. Talk about a locker room cancer. Semin was the problem now that he's gone it's smooth sailing to the cup.
First thing I want to say is, although we've shipped what 14 goals now, it is not yet time to panic. This is still early days.
Having said that, there is something I really miss. Something I saw in playoffs last season. We looked like a genuine playoff team then, solid, hard to break down, players working their socks off. And we beat teams a lot better than the ones we've faced so far. What I want to say with this is that hard work always brings results in the long run. I know we didnt beat the Rangers, but we were up there with some of the best teams - BOS, NYR - playing good, honest, hard working hockey. There was no flash or flair there, not at all.
If there is anything I miss, its that, and I am desperate to see that ASAP, till then you can use whichever system, coach, goalie you want, nothing will change.
