So apparently Jen, Arthur, and someone else will all meet up at the draft and have a good time. We fellow fans aren't so fortunate and will watch the draft from home and I'll also miss free agency since I'm going to vacation to Canada......
I'm trying to guess who Madden will pick in this year's draft and I'm assuming it's gonna be sheahan or kabanov with the first pick or skinner or etem with number 29 or 30... even a trade out with that 29 which is essentially a second round pick... damn Flyers.... so after that comes the free agents.
Like I said before I think Volchenkov is gone to the Caps and he don't wanna come out West... That leaves Zybnek of the Yotes and maybe Hamhius as real options. What I learned watching the playoffs this year was that you can't win without 4 legitimate top-4 d-man with one shutdown bruiser... I'll be the first to admit I thought Murray's moves were fantastic last year and I believed that Eminger, Boynton, Whitney, Wiz, and Sbisa were good enough of a defense... Looks like I was wrong and you fellow fans who were applauding Murray aka the Bufoon should also admit that you were excited with the shit moves Bob made last summer. So let's not speculate what we would do but let's try and predict what Murray and Madden will do and have some fun in this boring offseason so far.... Personally I see either Zybnek signing for 4 mil to 5 mil a year for 4 to 5 years... Pair him with Lubo and Sbisa with Scotty and Brooks with Mikkelson and.... never mind Festerling sucks...... The other scenario is signing Hamhius or maybe even trading for Coburn who is actually a top-4 d-man unlike Eminger or Boynton and can log some huge minutes even though he was a minus 6 or 7 this year on a deep Flyer blue line. Philly has some major cap problems and probably would consider moving a salary if we pony up a good d-prospect from our cupboard. I would give them Schultz, Mikkelson, Festerling and a 2nd or 3rd round pick. Mikkelson at this point has used up all his chances and Fester is just a normal sad dude so not much of a loss for us if we traded them.
So guys get predicting on what the "Bufoon" will do next cause even though we want to all be NHL GMs we sadly can't. :)
