What can Lou do about all this ? I mean I can't really ask too much from him. What are you supposed to do when a guy you signed to a 15 years contract walks after 2 years ? We lost Parise because of that Moron (Ilya) and now we are left with no top players.
The best forward we got is Patrick Elias. Unless the teams pulls out a rabbit and play a fantastic team play with some of the young players panning out (fantastic too) we are going to miss the playoffs for a 2nd years in a row and draft nobody at all.
