But he didn't stand pat. We've lost Greening, Michalek, Cowen, Phillips (or at least his cap hit), Prince and, very likely, Wiercioch; and gained Phaneuf, Puempel, Paul, Dzingel. Starting the year with a healthy CMac and Turris also huge. No big difficult decision about Puempel and Prince. Just let Puempel play on the fourth line and get some reps in. Paul and White also means Smith can continue playing on the wing, now that he seems to have found some chemistry.
That's a lot of turnover in the roster.
Now that he's addressed the D, he needs either a veteran C or a veteran winger. You could roll with Drouin, but imo you need a vet up there.
Hopefully there's a trade out there like the Phaneuf trade, but a C.
That's my opinion, obviously but you don't need to make a move on D now unless you're getting a veteran 3rd pairing guy, you need to focus on the forwards.
I cant think Of any Good C that might be available. Then again maybe that will change. Maybe a team trying to get younger and that hasn't faired well as of late. You wonder what it would take to get Jordan stall. A while back it was rumoured they might want to get from under such a long term deal. Definitely cost us Zib plus probably our first + ? That's if they want to move him. I see them more as a team that want to add roster guys rather than draft picks.
Edit: might not actually cost us our first. Could be seen as good for them just to younger. Jordan has a cup and a few good runs in experience. Could be nice.
Nah. Not sure who'll be around, we might have to shake a few trees.
Duchene? Yes please
