WEAK OFFSEASON so far...

After taking a leave from this board for about a year...Couldn't help but come back and rant.

Why do I feel like we are a second tier team making second tier moves?

YES. Great move signing HAMMER longterm. What so great about it? YOU'RE SUPPOSED to do this. It's a no-brainer.

YES. Great move signing Nabakov. UFA options were slim. So again, no-brainer.

Yes. I liked acquiring Clutterbuck. Nino wanted out. Didn't take much thought process.

Martin / Cizikas / Clutterbuck? I don't think they'll be a better hitting / energy line in the NHL.

Signing Bouchard today, is like signing Parenteau or Boyes. Just another TOKEN RW to play with Tavares and Moulson.

Signing Regin is like signing Keith Aucoin. SECOND TIER BULLSHIT MOVES!

Have the stones to pull off a Bobby Ryan deal for crying out loud.

Ottawa didn't give up much to get him. I would've given Anaheim: Anders Lee, Kabanov, the #1 this year and next years #1 to get him here.

The last earthquake of a trade was the RYAN SMYTH deal. PRETTY PATHETIC GARTH.

We made no noise. Just squeaks. Getting pretty tired of this. Especially after we made noise in our first playoff appearance since 2007. I felt respected again. Back to squeaky second tier BS.

Yes I will cheer, yes I will always be a fan. BUT, COME ON GARTH & WANG... SPEND SOME F'ING MONEY!

We are at the bottom of the cap floor. I'm not saying we should give away Clarkson & Horton money. I don't want to be the flyers or the leafs who sign big, buy them out, then sign big again.

JUST SOME NOISE. PLEASE?

I'm sorry to bring everyone down but...

THIS IS NOT ENOUGH TO GET PAST THE FIRST ROUND of the playoffs:

Moulson / Tavares / Bouchard

Bailey / Nielsen / Okposo

Grabner / STROME? / McDonald

Martin / Cizikas / Clutterbuck

Lubo / DONOVAN? HICKEY?

A-Mac / Hammer

STRAIT?? / Carkner
