Aren't people reading too much into the "7th" dman? Just because we carry 7 dmen doesn't mean we will actually play 7 dmen. 7th guy could just be a healthy scratch or rotate in.

Honestly if they were smart that'd be a solid move. He's clearly declining but still worth a ton to a contender. It'd fix there cap issues too

I think winning cures all. We suck and therefore the captain is the whipping boy

I think I provided a pretty fair assessment but you predictably get upset if anyone critiques him in any way. I gave him credit above for being the only good choice on the roster but left it by saying that doesn't mean there couldn't be improvement. Boo hoo

I think a lot of people here are taking your position because realistically Dion doesn't show a lot of the things we want In a captain. If we had a guy like Toews or Backes or someone who is a great captain we would all be saying how important it is.

Just watched the game.

Gotta say I was very impressed with Nylander's skill and vision. However, he clearly needs to get physically stronger and his play away from the puck needs a lot of work (circles around a lot instead of stops and starts, floating, etc). Would be great to see him dominate at the world juniors.

Leivo looks nhl ready. Finn can't skate. Verhaege needs to work on foot speed as well. Broll looks like he could contribute right now in a 4th line role. Biggs was finishing his checks well but dude is allergic to the puck. Loov was impressive.

Man if Nylander is the real deal our forward lines could be extremely deep next year. We may not have great centres but we could have very good overall depth.

Lupul. Bozak. Kessel

JVR. Kadri. Nylander

Koma. Holland. Clarkson.

Booth. Santa. Frattin.

No pluggers there at all

They gave up on him regardless. If he's really a 6'3, 220 pound monster who skates like the wind you don't give up on a player like that right ;)

No idea. I'm not high on Ashton. If everyone we signed plays as advertised I just don't see how he makes the team. Everyone forgets Tampa essentially dumped him. No question he tries hard but he has hands of stone.

Why are people still obsessed with Burke? It's not happening so who cares. Might as well discuss Crosby playing with Kessel while you are at it

Just because he plays a harder role doesn't mean anything. That's because our team has been garbage and there is nobody else. He's playing OUT of role.

I like bozak. I want him on this team. But he's a top 3C, good 2C, bad 1C. That's not going to change.
