I have no problems dealing with the ups-and-downs, but I just wish Lou would make moves accordingly (says an armchair GM, I know, I know).
If the only offensive acquisition to be made for this goal-starved team was Sullivan, why not ship out one of the D for picks? I imagine Lou will use at least one buyout this summer on a defenseman, I would've taken a freakin 5th round pick for one of em.
To me, the fact that Lou hasn't traded Tallinder for picks tells me that he's leaning toward a buyout of Volchenkov. Volchenkov's got an NTC and Tallinder doesn't. If Lou wanted to get rid of one of the 2 during the season it'd have had to have been Henrik, but since he didn't I figure he's waiting for the Amnesty.
