Well, you haven't topped sakic20 yet... Since when does Alfredsson play centre?
The Ranger deal makes no sense at all, once Varada comes back they have no need for Simon.
And why would they hurt their PK even more by dealing Schaefer(Bonk is out for a month or so, so is White) and take on Tkachuk's big contract?
The Sens defense after Chara and Redden isnt that good.. Rachunek and Phillips have sucked lately, as well as Pothier and leschysen .. Those 4 guys will fold in the playoff pressure IMO ..
Its funny that you would be satisfied with a shoddy defense, but instead go for even more forwards to add when your forwards is your best position . Stupid of you I say ..
You need an upgrade at the goalie position and better defenders in the 4 -6 spots before anything .. At least you wont be givng up so many leads in games with upgrades there ..
How did you come up with "Phillips has sucked lately", and that he'll fold in the playoffs because of the pressure? It's interesting that the person who likes to call others stupid is usually the one making the erroneous statements.
Phillips has played well this year, and the last 2 playoff years he was probably Ottawa's best all around defenceman. He seems to be one of those guys who can step it up come playoff time. In fact, he scored the OT winner in game 6 vs the Devils.
Given that thread was started by a guy with the name Jeff O'Neill, I don't see this as evidence that Ottawa fans are saying the Sens should go out and get more forwards. I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that you think toronto's defence is pretty solid and underrated?
