i mean.. not that i want to pretend that i know more than Lou or anyone... but our problem and solutions are pretty damn obvious.
1- need more offence
2- need to deal with the logjam on the D
3- look for our future without hurting the present
We absolutely can get rid of Volch or Salvador without skipping a beat im 110% sure of that. Thats extra cap space to spend at a better position right there. The NHL gave us the chance to get rid of a contract with no consequences. Lets fvcking use it. Thats a fvcking gift and we NEED IT now. cash wize and roster wize. Im gonna be pisse if Lou doesnt use it.
We need to get more playing time to Larsson and i'd really like to get Fayne signed... he's solid and yeah we have some good Ds but once Zids, Volch and Volch are gone we'll need a solid defensive Dman and we have him right there right now. Santini will probably won't be ready yet.
Then we can at least try to sign a forward. i'd really prefer overpaying for a good forward who can get the job done than seeing that money spent on Volch or Sal...
Even getting rid of some dead weight on forward wouldnt hurt at this point. We have too much of the same thing.
