thank god you're not my gm... I'm glad we kept parise for the cup run and I'm glad we didn't trade clarkson for a second round pick when we still had a chance at the playoffs.
Thats simple. By knowing youre gonna lose him and choosing long term instead of short term. 29 teams doesnt win the cup every year, yet they come back the next year, they survive. How many team lose 3 30 goals scorers for absolutely nothing withing 2 season but yet the GM is not to blame at all?
Joe Thornton is a ufa this offseason. If the sharks can't give him an extension before the deadline should they trade him? How about statsny, Phaneuf, Callahan or steen? Each of those teams are looking at the playoffs but should they just cut bait now so that they don't walk for nothing?
