I dont have a problem with being optimistic, but I dont see how this team can pull off a trade that's going to make the playoffs a realistic possability. Could Cory's play carry us in with the acquisition of a legitmate top line LW who decides to show up and produce? Sure, I'll buy that. But where is it going to come from and what is it going to cost?
If Lou can find it, great. Otherwise, I have no problem selling Jagr, Zid and even Marty if they fetch a decent return.
