So long and thanks for all the fish.

#3 is because Elias & Gomez saw the top defensive pairings (even though they blew some chances). hossa didn't score at all is this series. should the sens deal him?1
Third Gomez and Elias still suck in the playoffs and need to be traded even though they are young and talented. Lou could fleece someone for them. We could get enough in retun to build a new young team, esp. if we win the cup, their value will be high. I'll take a Claude Lemieux (or two John Maddens based on salary) over an Elias every day of the week.
Fourth, you can't say enough about guys like Pando, Albelin, Marshall and Rheume and maybe throw Gionta in there. Unlike Gomer and Elias, thse guys all over-achieved. In this series when Pando took a shot I actually leaned over b/c I expected it to maybe go in. Never did that b/4. When Albelin was bringing the puck out of the zone I never freaked out that he would do something stupid. Marty and Stevens get all the publcicity but w/o these guys we wouldn't be here.
#4 is because guys like Elias & Gomez saw so much attention that the other guys had chances.
If Lou does move them, he'll be getting something better in return. That's always the way. But I don't think they'll get moved.

Tomorrow is a gift.
Tomorrow is the future
Today is a gift...that is why it is called the "present"
