Eh, it would cost alot in salary and in assets and your right we would never trade with Philly. Shero has made it clear that we arent going to be handing out long deals or large salaries this summer, although he has pointed out repeatedly that we will be doing some trading to address the rest of our needs. We are going to need dominant years from Fleury, Crosby and Malkin to get into the playoffs to make up for the many other problem areas that aren't really going to be satisfactorily addressed this year. The thing is that I am tired of waiting and I don't want to hear about building slowly anymore. Like Bob, we have been living in the basement for several years now and I am running short on patience. I want a playoff berth NOW!!!
We havent done **** since 2001.
