It is good to know that you still cant acknowledge that free agency exist in the NHL where we got players like Pronger, Selanne and Niedenmeyer. Free agency gives you the short cut where youth lacks experience to get you to the playoffs and beyond. When time comes, we will be hunting and gathering to keep the flow going. Highlighting Paulsson is correct but he is 30 right now. Not exactly close to a dinosaur. Others like Hedican are probably one year and done like we have had in the past. Fillers that do a good job for their line.
BTW: Did you happen to see the first goal last night by no other than Bobby Ryan? He is getting time on the PP too. Right now, he is far from a bust and one of the hotter players on the team. If there name has RYAN in it, they are sticking around. As for the young studs, you forgot Perry. Kunitz is up there also. I like this season but cant wait to see how wrong you will be in a few seasons. Maybe a hick up of one season but nothing like you guys produced after the Montreal Finals season. Kinda Clippers-isque for SoCal
