Yeah you just never know when a guy like that might hit free agency again. Add in the the chips are falling in a way that we became a favorite and its a move Fitz just had to go for.

I really wish they would finish it up so we can breathe 

If anything it kinda makes sense that it's taking some time...with all of the UFAs that used to sign mere MINUTES after UFA was supposed to begin, I always suspected that there was plenty of tampering going on.  Assuming that Fitz didn't truly reach out to Hamilton's camp until he was "supposed" to, yeah, there is probably a good bit to sift through in getting a deal done.

Doesn't mean I'm feeling any less impatient waiting for this thing to happen already.

The good news is we aren’t hearing “Deal isn’t done, and now the Rangers are in the mix”.

Danault to the Kings

I suspect we will get Hamilton and have to be happy with that. I don’t feel like we’re going to make a splash regarding forwards.

My argument is simply I don't think its fair to call fans impatient. You said it's ok to be impatient for a friend who shows up 2 hours late. It's ok to be impatient to want some minor success after 8 out of the past 9 years of missing the playoffs. Hell I'd be happy with the team actually being in the playoff hunt instead of being dead last and virtually eliminated before January. 

I'm not asking for a Cup win every year, now that would be ok to criticize fans for lol

Well it depends on which impatience that Dano was referring to. Dano knows that the team made some HUGE progress in 6 years. And to see fans bringing it all down to "we havent made the playoffs in x years and havent made any progress" is quite insulting IMO cause it's so not true

They've already got Trouba and Fox.

But yeah, substitute in some other teams for "Rangers", and the possibility that someone else could swoop in has definitely crossed by mind.

im just worried that another team is working on a move that could free some cap space and they are waiting to see if they can make it happen.

Honestly i don't know what could take this long at this point if both sides were committed to make it happen

Yeah with Bernier being done, I get the feeling it's "Hamilton or Bust" at the moment.

COL, BOS and WSH gonna have to slot in other players to goaltend

Put Taylor Hall in goal, it'll be like haing a goalie and an inner tube blocking the goal.

Lip save and a beauty!
