Arnason is good but he's not the second coming. It helps that he's asked to be traded.
IMO i think that a 25y.o. 20+ goal scorer has much more value than a 27y.o. offensive defenseman who doesn't hit, doesn't play defense, and couldn't clear a bag of pucks out from in front of the net. maybe i'm wrong (i think i have been at least twice today so far on this board, so it wouldnt be a surprise )
jj68- you are a ranger fane and u would actually hurt us by signing osgood, he is horrible det gave him away for free then nyi noticed how crappy he was now st louis dont want hium and, and u are sayiong u want him dont u see a trend with osgood . id rather keep dunham. we will go knowwhere with osgood.
Friesen-jokinen/conroy/rolston-Jagr ( if ot jokinen than rolston or conroy would be cool)
murray- lundmark/ j. stal-balej
larose-j. stal/moore- scott
pock - nycholat ( pock and nycholat 2 very mature young d men give them a shot definite #2 pair )
matvichuk - lampman ( great mentor for lampman, 2 north american guys )
dunham/valiquette ( let them fight for #1 think valiquette could be excellent #1 for us for a couple years he gotthe potential ) mike dunham could wind up being a expensive back up hope valiquette get a good shot.
think those lines would be pretty sweet if we get a good coach we could def be a playoff contender
