Getting the bottom 6 up to snuff is far more important IMO. I mean I love to make a splash or have the big names as much as any but IMO Sutter and Cooke are the only ones worth diddly on the 3/4 lines

However I agree about the forward situation. Even if Shero doesn't want to (or can't) add the expensive pieces, at least add some grit. Tanner Glass is one piece, but get a couple more.
no name wrote:Luring free agents ok yeah. But since the lock out how many good players have we lost to free agency... Scuds... Eaton... well my point is we are able to lock up our own. Once they are here. Alot of teams lose big names to free agency. Since Shero we have lost most of our guys on out terms.

JoseCuervo wrote:while sutter isn't as offensively gifted as staal, he can certainly provide some offense. sutter isn't solely a shut-down center and plays a lot like a younger staal. He could certainly fit on the 2nd line for a short term barring any minor injuries.
