Kevin Connauton and a 2nd rd pick, Anaheim needed to do better and could have.

Too bad Anaheim didn't get him?

Their schedule is ridiculously tough. Not out of the question to draft 1st overall and take hometown boy Seth Jones.
Loui Eriksson please

Well Tambo should get off the crapper, and make some calls. That's probably one of our biggest needs.

Edit: -15 although on a bad islanders team.

Well not so much that as they seem to be sleeping at the wheel.

My opinion as a whole though is get another top 4 d-man regardless of what type they are. Having another top 4 in this defensive corps is what we need. Take minutes away from everyone and balance things out better. Having a 3rd pairing that has a top 4 d-man on it would go a long way for this club.
Ya, agreed. It lets everyone play minutes/role they are most comfortable with. Wouldn't surprise me to see players play better with reduced ice time on the back end.

One less team in the fray looks like... don't mind that at all... Sharks could still blow it up also...

Ideally we want them to be sleeping. We still have 3 very important games against them.

NYI get assets for Streit, while not really 'selling' while they're in the playoff push.

Oil get an upgrade on Whitney, and would then have a good shot at resigning him.

Low risk, pretty high reward IMO.
I'd be for it. Simply because I think we could re-sign him.

I guess this means Dallas has officially thrown in the towel.
