Sign Tanev and Max. All I really care about. Any FA signings are an unexpected bonus.
Well, Gillis is doing his usual NOTHING. Other teams in our new division (Phoenix and Edmonton) are acquiring good players and look to compete for a playoff spot next year. I'm not sure the Canucks will re-sign Lapierre, but it makes no sense, we need a bottom 6 centre, so why not re-sign him? I just hope they sign Tanev, he's very solid. I'd be willing to part with Edler or Bieksa if it meant a good 3rd line centre and another piece. We could've picked up Komisarek for under a million, but he went to Carolina. Looks like Raymond could become a Flame today at some point. Ballard is now with the Wild, good on him, I'm sure he'll get a lot of opportunity and ice time in Minny - unlike here under AV. C'mon Gillis, shape this team, they're not good enough right now.
I will say in all honest I like the Weber signing. Kind of feels like when we traded and got Gragnani. He wasn't that good, but came with tons of potential. I think Weber is what Gragnani was at the time. Weber has a lot of potential, and he could be a total flame out, but could also prove to be a very good acquisition.
I don't mind Richardson but what happened to giving Gaunce a shot at the third line? I honestly won't be happy until Gillis gets the axe or until he makes a trade that makes sense. I'm so fed up with this crap. Gillis does a lot of thing right as a GM but trades and FA are not one if them.
