If we aren't selling, how about buying?



Resign Nabo - resign Parenteau or not - My intuition tells me both will resign eventually.

Meanwhile - how about acquiring some help to make a sincere push to make the playoffs. Currently as constructed this team is not a playoff team, but with two key additions, getting rid of the fat, and getting some youth and energy injected into lineup this team can make up that ground.

I scratch my head when I think about how management has not tried to solve it's problems by trade or from within - it is now time to do that with 20 games left.

Trades - a top 9 forward (RJ Umberger, E. Nystrom) and a quality d man (a Bryan Allen) - 2nd and 3rd round picks with some prospects (Wishart, Koskinen, Joensuu, Rahkshani, Ullstrom). * look at the trades for Kosit. and Zidlicky as groundwork for a deal.

2nd and Wishart for Allen or 3rd Ullstrom

Rahkshani for Umberger

or Rahkshani and 3rd for Nystrom

(maybe they'd want more, but Umberger comes with a big contract, Allen is UFA. I am just tossing out names- the specific names is not the point of the post. The Isles could have made the deal for zidlicky and kosit.)

The Fat - Eaton and Jurcina go for picks... (3rd and 4th round picks)

The Youth - Michael Haley, Casey Cizikas, Matt Donovan, Kevin Poulin and Aaron Ness getting the call.

Moulson JT PA Streit - Hammer

Grabs Fransy Kyle Macdonald - Allen

Nystrom Bailey Martin Donovan - Staios/Ness

Haley Cizikas Nino

(Reasoner and Pandolfo for depth)

If we still don't make it - it is a message to the fans, players, and the league that this team wants to win. But to not sell and not buy - is just confusing and twisted.
