With respect to the WC it is all academic now since no team can stop the Blackhawks unless there is a sudden outbreak of persistent explosive non-stop diarrhea in the greater Chicago area or some sort of plane crash.
naw, we need Jones more. EJ needs to stay healthy, we need to cut the scrubs in Hunwick,Zanon & O'Brien then pick up Scuderi or Regehr for 2 years.
that would give us Jones,Johnson,Hejda,Barrie,Scuderi/Regeher & Elliot.
after next season Siemens comes up so that allows us to drop Hejda or one of the vet signees.
