“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
If Despres & Bortuzzo continue to play like this, Niskanen will become expendable for the right forward. Next year, we'll be worried about him becoming a UFA in 2014 and losing him for nothing. With the depth we have (and it'll only get more competitive with Dumoulin and the others). Personally, I'd do Niskanen & Tangradi for Seto & Phillips considering that we have more than enough depth to make up for his loss and the fact that he'll be a UFA sooner rather than later. You have to give to get.
I don't know how, but this is all Tangradi's fault.
He should have taught Fleury how to have better rebound control, and if he hadn't **** the bed earlier in the season he would have been out on the ice right then and could have cleared that rebound out of the crease.
