I was talking w/ a friend, and I guess its gonna be:
Somehow I'd like on the defensemen to have an A, not that the letter on the chest really matters, and I think I'd prefer Rozsival in the sense that he's been w/ the team for 3 years already, although it seems Redden is gonna be the leader of this defense corp.
Hey, IMO, Lundqvist is the best goalie in the NHL right now (though some devs/canucks/pens/stars fans--and maybe Isles fans cause some are still sippin the DP kool-aid like Lindsay Lohan sips Red Bull and Vodka). Why not reward the best goalie in the league (and also the most valueable to your team) with an "A"?
But then again, goalies are goalies. And in the immortal words of Denis Lemieux and Reggie Dunlop:
- I'm tired of it! Puke! Blah! All the time, puke!
- You're a goalie; you're supposed to be like that.
this will ensure it won't change for the next 4 years unless one of them gets traded. Stability is good.
I agree, Redden wasn't brought in for his good looks and talent alone. He was brought in to be a leader on defense and to mentor young Staal. Plus I feel you should have leadership on both the forward and defensive ranks. Drury and Gomez are no brainers.
