No guarantees in life, but the odds swing dramatically in your favor. This team is going NOWHERE for years to come. Hank is the only asset most teams would even consider and the only one over 30.
I agree what's the problem with dead money on the books. Unless you see a superstar stud in the organization, all of the other teams are locking up their(Edit: their stud) players. This team needs tore down, I don't see a few years of dead money being too detrimental to a rebuild.
100% agree. Dead money is on the books no matter what. DEAD players and dead money is what we have now. I'd rather see a young team struggle than E, Kronner and Co. in an old timers pension skate with a goal to be first round playoff fodder. It only extends the suffering/ascent back to NHL royalty.
They should have moved Hank last year. I thought the Kings or Ducks might take him (and he might want to play out his career in the sun of SoCal).
