Hahah, I know Phaneuf has some problems and is ragged on too, but I just think we need more D-man like him, big body, tough, hard hitting, won't stray from protecting his teammates, or scrums.
It's not Dan's system though. Dan's system is to have a bunch of small guys like our prospects (which I think they'll be really good anyways) that skate up and down at full speed and at times shy from contact.
Shero needs to shake the roster up it's essentially the same team that's failed 3 years in a row, something needs done, and since he's sticking by Bylsma (wrong choice, but given the coaches to replace him I could see how he may just be waiting.) they'll have to settle for roster guys.
I think Letang is done, especially since we just signed Kunitz, we got to sign Dupuis, and then I think the rest can be FA acquisitions, or trades.

I don't think that deal will be done anyway....reason, Phaneuf's cap hit is 6.5 mil next season and I doubt Pitt wants that right now.

Oh yeah definitely, can't do that unless its a crazy package deal - which I doubt too..
I just want the draft to roll around, I wouldn't be surprised if we packaged Fleury/Letang, or even just traded Fleury to a different team (I'm really just hoping at this point ) but we need some fresh faces for sure, I'm just excited to see what return we can get for Letang.

Dont get too excited, remember what we got for Jagr?

btw this past week at my ice hockey game some of the guys were talking about players and salaries etc at the other end of the dressing room. It wasn't till afterwards that I found out and verified that 3 of the guys work for a hockey agency and one of them is an agent for quite a few players. I wish I had listened harder but one thing I remember is one of guys said an unnamed but reputable NHL player said that in his opinion Komisarek was the worst player in the NHL LOL

Seems like a damn fine deal for Calgary.

I'm really happy to see Tanguay back in an Av's uni. Great trade for both teams. I imagine this means trade for Sarich instead of drafting Seth Jones.
