Got ‘em: Pittsburgh aside, arguably the best collection of young talent in the game
Need ‘em: veteran infusion at forward and defense, as well as in goal
Potential Free Agent Targets: Sheldon Souray (MTL), Chris Drury (BUF), Curtis Joseph (PHX), Eric Lindros (DAL)
My response to THN's opinion:
Got 'em: Thank you for noticing our fine collection of young boys. Hopefully they'll turn out to become a fine collection of NHL stars.
Need 'em: I agree that we need a veteran presence at forward, defense, and goal.
Need 'em: Yes, Yes, NO!!!, NO!!! I do believe that Souray and Drury would make great additions to our club. But Cujo?! Please, we're already dealing with Cloutier (although I do realize that Cujo would be a slight improvement over Cloots). And Lindros?! He's one more concussion away from retirement. I don't want to go anywhere near that train wreck and I highly doubt that DL would either.
I'm really excited for tomorrow's free agency frenzy. I thought about doing a live blog but realized I have a lot of trouble waking up before noon on the weekends. I'll probably end up doing a late night wrap up of my wonderful thoughts on DL's move(s).
