Good effort.

Cammalleri, Gomez, Henrique, Jagr (when he was here), Elias, and Bernier all producing like top 6 forwards.

 

Cammy, Gomez, and Henrique are producing like legit first liners albeit on the lowest tier of first line forwards.

ok, Thanks for this .. roughly puts in perspective our situation

 

It just goes to show what kind of league we have today.  This year it's possible no player reaches 90 points.

1. yeh he's better at center, but "roles" need to be relative to the environment and what makes sense, just like it made sense for elias to switch to center several years ago relative to the team makeup at the time. the team makeup right now is one desperate for RWs.

 

2./7. why? the better UFA RWs are gonna want 2 and 3 and 4 year contracts.  why tie ourselves to another clunker for several years?  years of that approach is what gets the devils in trouble.  it's better to wait for real talent on UFA instead of signing overpriced low-mid range clunkers.  throwing money at the problem just because there's money to throw doesn't make sense.  frolik MAYBE.  but i'm tired of signing guys to longer deals than we should.  if history of the UFA market is any guide, it's always best to stay out of it for the first week or so, until prices become more reasonable.  and even longer... when guys are willing to sign 1 year deals.

 

We have only 9 forwards signed for next year.  That's why.  We can't let Bernier and Tootoo go, and not bring anybody in because otherwise we won't have a full roster.
