I'd like to see Johanson play too, if he has a good camp I think he could help us reach a playoff spot, I don't believe we're that far away.
I agree, the Thompson pick was silly, they should have drafted the Euro who went to Toronto, even if he had to wait a year, his name slips my mind. Kyrie is going to be great though.
If we do sign Bieksa or Ehrhoff they will be overpaid but I think that's ok at this point, we're defintiely trying to revive the CBJ brand and get people excited again.
I rather get Bieska, how about you guys?
But I do want to resign Upshall
lol Bieksa is resigned with the Canucks. I doubt we get Upshall but he'd help a lot. I think we're REAL close right now, we need to make some small moves and sign a good defensmen and I think we can compete for a bottom 4 playoff spot.
most of just happened, Erhoff. Also Mason has to have a good year and be more consistent.
The defensive class is shrinking. I'd honestly like to get a Dman over 35 for cheap right now based on what's left or Scott Hannan if the price is right since Bieksa and Ehrhoff are basically done.
Yeah, I don't really like Hannan that much though
Do you think Carter plays with Nash?
I say no, wouldn't play great together and split them up and 2 stars on 2 lines, works.
Huselius Johanson Nash
Umberger Carter Calvert
Upshall Vermette Brassard
Boll Murray Dorsett
I don't think they should unless it's on the PP. Looks like we're going to HOPEFULLY get Wisniewski. That'd be great, we still need a shut down defensemen though. I don't think I like Johanson on the 1st line though since he's never seen any NHL time. Probably switch RyJo and Vermette and I like it.
Yeah thats true with RyJo, and is there dumped with him?
Nevermind I saw that Wisenwiski is coming, I think he is a good pick up, this team looks good if they can resign Upshall and Mason plays decent, those 2 things and I think they will make playoffs
I think he's a good pick up too. Mason definitely has to play up to his potential but we need to get a defense in front of him.
Wiseniswki, Tyutin, Stralman, Russel, Clitsmore, Hejda, Methot, are some of their good dman
How about if they signed Stankos ha, and Kopecky and resigned Upshall, that would be nice of course
Sadly Upshall is going to Florida
What else do the Jackets have to do?
Right now they are only a 6-8 seed.
I say explore Free Agency and sign Sergi Samsonov and Alexander Frolov.
Also trade, Huselius, Lepisto, and 2012 2nd round pick to Dan Boyle.(Probably not enogh)
But if they got atleast 2-3 of those players they would be a lot better.
