lol seriously. Today feels like a Game 7 of the playoffs with all that's riding on it, bigger really since today could impact us positively or negatively for years.
yes and more than we may imagine. If we lose Parise then we have to replace his production. Through free agency there's no guy who can replace him and anyone close WILL BE an overpayment, its free agency. Then if we trade to get a guy we'll have to send roster players in order to replace a guy so youre losing a main guy plus others guys and picks.
if we lose Brodeur, we have to get a starter and same thing... we're not gonna get any gifts there UNLESS we get a cheap goalie who pull a Elliot/Smith.
Of course its not gonna be devastating and ruin the franchise but we'll be wound for awhile thats a guarantee
