That's always been our MO, ya we won the Stanley Cup last season but how long (with this plans) did it take to win it?

Suter at 6 is cheaper than Nash at 7.8 plus you can never have enough good D
Last playoffs we had Rex, Ryder and guys like Krejci who actually performed. You are correct that LA & NJ don't have guys signed to $7.8 million contract but guess what....Kopitar $6.8 million, Doughty $7 million. New Jersey doesn't have a true $7 million player (unless they re-sign Parise this year). But still they have three guys making a good amount of money: Kovalchuk $6.6 million, Parise $6 million, Elias $6 million.
We didn't have a guy at 7.8 million and we found ways to get into the lead last playoffs. NJ and LA don't have guys at 7.8 and the get leads. Why is it that everybody thinks the easiest and best way to solve our goalie problem is to get this one guy?
I'll say it again with the right pieces around a high paid player you can be successful. Boston has the pieces in place to do this.
Actually I hate roulette (dumbest game you can play), I'm more of a ultimate poker guy.
Do all of you go to the casino and just bet on one number at roulette? I mean if he doesn't work out we are screwed with him. I like spreading my bets around smaller wins but better chances
No secondary scoring? Really? are we trading every player we have for Rick Nash? Seguin (29), Marchand (28), Lucic (26), Krejci (23) & Bergeron (22). Obviously Krejci or Lucic would be moved but you're right we have no secondary scoring at all.
Your hoping next year a smart defensive team won't say oh Boston is a one trick pony just defend Nash.....and we have no secondary scoring because we couldn't afford it.
No one becomes great by playing it safe. Look at the world most successful people, they all took a risk as some point.
You don't understand my point about Joe T your taking a huge risk and he might turn out to be like him. I don't want to take that risk
How did that work out for the Rangers or better yet how'd that work out for Nashville?
Honestly I believe a defense will always beat an offense so IF you want to spend money I'd always spend it on D
