I know lot of GM are looking at their phone... afraid (or happy) to receive a call from a pissed Lou.

..rebuilding season without a 1st round pick seems pretty strange.. Jagr+Vanek somehow?

I don't think it was a shock for Lou at this point.

Watch as Lou pulls a rabbit out of our ass and trades Tedenby for Malkin straight up.

Take the "no name D" water bottle and write "no name O" and hope for the same magic. 

 

 

My steps forward: plug in that 6 mil cap with Jagr and maybe try to overpay for a young RFA (will plead ignorance on who's still available). Try and patch together a playoff run with some 2-1 1-0 Scheinder and vintage marty's and overall great D..if it doesn't work out then get ready to have a sh!t ton of cap space next offseason.

Volchenkov should defect to Russia too, and at the same time Salvador morphs into Nick Lidstrom and bammm...we're in business.

I wanted Lou to get Brunner before Kovygate happened, even more so now.

It's not like we could trade next years first round pick now either so that means giving up a prospect or two. Man, just as I ws feeling really optimistic about next season.

I said in the other thread, but I'd like to grab Brunner and Penner. While I want Adam signed, I am tired of long contracts, 3-4 years are fine as long as you don't wait until the last second to renegotiate.

If it's true Lou had some advance knowledge this was gonna happen, I certainly hope the wheels are in motion right now for some kind of a replacement.

Do we have what it's needed to get Vanek... Even if he is UFA next year ? 

And not too much as we dunno if he would want to stay with us anyway...
