Anyone on here.....

.....miss Visnovsky as much as I do?

Math equation......Mark Streit-Lubimir Visnovsky = 0....New York Islander defensemen that can regularly hit the net with a shot from the point.

Without them we are only left with rarely hit the net.

Before you go there.... I'm not suggesting we should have kept Streit at 21 million .....but really.....we couldn't find anyone on the free agent market to sign......maybe trade two draft choices for? Considering the franchises' M.O. is we're not rebuilding/growing anymore but....yes.... contending and competing with the big boys this year, why did we go into this year with only one solid offensive defensemen and not two....like last year? How did that make sense?

Garth.....don't you remember what happened a few years ago when Streit was out for the season....and he was are only offensive defenseman?.....nada

Overall, I've liked Garth as GM....look at his predecessor.......and I don't mean Neil Smith..........but going into a year weaker than the previous one (Streit and Boyes) and expecting more (Clutterbuck,Regin,Bouchard) tells me he might not be the guy to get us to that next level.

Oh, and the Vanek deal.....never mind......not going to go there.....just hope I'm completely wrong with my thoughts on that one.

I miss Lubi....time to go and light another candle for him.
