Lol. Please tell me you're joking!
I love this team and I've seen some promising signs, but even if Jared Cowen
is the next Chris Pronger
, for the next 3-4 years we're bogged down with some ****ty contracts. Phillips, Gonchar, Kuba...half our blue line are basically choke artists, and we're seeing that same losing pattern creeping into Karlsson's game at an alarming pace. The offense is ok, but they're hardly beasts of the east. At least not yet.
Filatov just didn't do anything exceptionally well. Maybe another stint in the AHL will do the trick, but if not, he was traded for a third round pick. Little ventured, little lost!
