In Topic: Off-season Game Plan: It Won't be Lou's

He hasn't had this much roster flexibility in a LONG time.  So many things he can do to improve the team.

 

Here's another thing.  A lot of you are calling for his head if we don't make the playoffs next year.  But you'd also be calling for his head if we trade someone like Merrill or Santini.  We can't keep all of our defensemen.  And Merrill or Santini or Gelinas even can bring back some good assets.  If we wanna make the playoffs, we have to look to trade one of those guys.  If we don't, we're gonna be stuck for a little while.  And I can tell many of you don't have enough patience to go through 3 or 4 more years of this.

 

Bottom line, we can't have it both ways.  We built up the defense for a reason.  Now it's time to do something with it.  Trading a Merrill or Gelinas or Santini would help speed up the rebuild process provided he finds the right deal.

 

I've been saying it practically all season long.  Wait until September before judging this team.  I guarantee we won't be going into next season with only 13 players.

 

Another question is, when was the last time Lou was responsible for setting the team back?  The answer is never.  What set the team back was Kovy bailing, and Parise signing for Minny.  Neither are Lou's fault.  One was the fault of JVB, and the other was the "fault" of Parise.

Dang what a snipe by severson, I thought it was Camm at first!

 

Offense from our defense shouldn't be too big of an issue going forward.

A top 6 forward in the NHL this year produced at 0.47 points per game or better.  Bernier, Elias, Jagr, Henrique, Gomez, and Cammalleri all produced like top 6 forwards.
