Yeah there's no reason for them to lie about it other than buying time.  People will know soon enough if the owners are full of sh!t about claiming they want to win and then having another three tank seasons.

What would be nice is if Fitzgerald or someone gave a press conference like Joe Judge did.  You don't need to tell us the maximum contract offer you're willing to give to Sami Vatanen or who on the team is specifically on the trading block, but some concept of the type of players you're hoping to bring in beyond platitudes of "fast, attacking, supportive" would go a long way.

They came out and said they are tired of losing and haven't been winning enough. Complete opposite of what tanking involves. 

What else would they say?

They could say that to protect Shero or themselves to not make either party look foolish. It was a generic statement.

Could have just said the usual "philosophical differences" BS and left it at that? 

If they are now going to let Fitz blow the team up and trade off all the vets, and tank the rest of the season then why fire Ray now? Could have just stuck with the same plan.

If you are trading off vets, you want to get the best return. Maybe they didn’t trust that Shero would be the one to get the best return.

Shero’s strength is literally trading. You off him before the deadline with three years left on his contract either because you don’t think it’s fair to have him make moves for the next GM (since according to I think Friedman the decision was already made to can him by year’s end a while ago) or there’s a philosophical divide and perhaps Shero would go rogue a la Hextall last year. There’s no other reason that makes sense.

Don't know if this was posted or if anyone is interested, but just watched this video on YouTube (I follow this guy, he's pretty funny lol). A pretty good assessment of our team right now. We gotta be able to laugh about those things, right?

P.S. If you liked this video, watch the one on the Lightning choking vs. Columbus in the 1st round last year, it's great lol.

That's one area Ray has performed very well on over the last 5 years IMO.

Defense core needs complete overhaul.

We desperately need to jettison Greene, and most of the 5-6 guys. 

Im ok with moving Butcher out if it gets us something better, he really hasn't been great since early his first year.

Wonder if Fitz will call Ray, bro, what should I get for homeboy?
