Someone had to start it.
A few thoughts.
Very pleased that Sather wrapped up Del Zotto for two years at a fair number. I personally wanted to keep him. I think we forget sometimes that he's only 22. He still has a ton of upside. He simply needs to cut down on his mental mistakes. I felt his defensive game improved greatly last year. In two years I think we'll know one way or the other if this kid is the real deal or not. Perfect deal.
I expect there could be a slow start for the #1 line. One week is pretty short to get it all together. But it sure will be exciting to see what Richards, Gabby and Nash can do together.
Looking forward to watching Kreider. Looking forward to watching Hagelin.
Gilroy was a nice signing. He can step in on the 3rd pairing to spell Eminger or he may win that job outright. Bickel could also be in the mix. Personally, I hope he is because I love his toughness and the way he sticks up for his teammates. I'm also glad they brought Stralman back. I think he's a solid #4.
Let's get this party started!
