Now, imagine if the NFL just decided in the off season to outlaw the "handoff". How would our Broncos fair?

Anyway, this team needs to be gutted, and I mean from top to bottom. Trade Gagne, Forsberg, Richards, Nitty, Esche, Pitkanan, Kapanen, etc. Anyone who has any sort of value. Trade them all for draft picks. The blueprint is set. Suck for 5 years and aquire the #1 or #2 pick every year and draft skilled speed skaters. Pittsburgh and Washington layed the ground work. Let's follow suit. Our reign in the East is over.
I think Pitkanen will be a very good player...Richards too, you should keep them. Get rid of the rest though, I agree.
