No problem. My proposal may well be unrealistic. The point I was trying to make is that MB has done the opposite of what most people expected. Not the first time. It may well be that he tried and balked at the cost. We only speculate here. If we go all the way this year the transactions will collectively be seen as a stroke of genius.

No I don't know for sure. "Could" = subjunctive mood. Take it easy man.

Yes I would have liked to see Yakupov or Eberle. If we go all the way with these moves we'll be bowing down at MBs feet, laying palm leaves in his path... if not...

A package of Sekac, Eller and Emelin or a prospect could have brought back a bonafide top six scorer. Instead we've added three bottom six grinders. MB has gone against the "conventional wisdom" that we needed scoring. Interesting.

Well, if he plays like that again in these playoffs then we have a player who is a very valuable asset. I hope he gets the chance to prove that it was no fluke with us rather than another team. So many good regular season players disappear come playoff time. I'm willing to put up with a so so performance from a guy if I know he'll crank it into high gear when it really matters.

Welcome back Boone. You had us worried there! Jeez I was just about to ask if someone could pick up the comments. For some of us it's the only way to follow the game.

Good article. Glad no one was paying attention as I read it.

I expect Eller to bring it where it counts, in the post season. We've already ditched one playoff performer in Bourque. I hope we don't lose another at the trade deadline.

Gonchar is UFA this summer. He would have to settle for a serious pay cut for that to ever happen. Their combined caphit is currently near 10 mil, not sustainable for a 3rd pairing.

So, we outplay the Penguinos at the end of a road trip and after playing the night before. It sounds like the boys pulled together and self motivated to keep the energy going. I've said all along there's no need for these young bucks to be using the "got-nothing-in-the-tank-on-the-road-back-to-back-games-excuse"! Kudos to MB for going with CHaracter. YEAH BABY!
