Puckhead your embarrassing yourself! Your talking about a first ballot hall of famer, with 4 cups, being a captain of a team that won a record 19 straight playoff series! Give it up with Potvin already.

Garth has not had a bad offseason at all. It hasn't been great, but I don't understand why people complain that we don't go out and sign all these players? Rebuilding does not entail signing a whole bunch guys in or near their 30s that will be looking to bolt as soon as some offers come in at the trade deadline. One of the guys that age would be a good signing, worst case scenario they get moved at the TD and we get picks or prospects in return, but we don't need 2-4 of them. I would have liked to have seen Garth sign a solid, young stay at home d-man and a nice goon to protect our young guys. We are not very tough right now at all. Fritz will see hardly any games, let alone ice time, this year. Wrecker is a good light heavyweight but can't offer the protection we need. Sutton will probably play like 30-40 games, and Witt is an injury liability also. Other than not getting a goon and a good, young, defensive d-man, I'm totally fine with Garth's work this summer. You haven't seen Pitt, Chicago, Washington, or Philly go out and make any stupid free agent signings while they were rebuilding and look where they are now. Solid, perennial cup contenders who are NOW able to land some big free agents. Rebuilding takes time people.

Cmon guy, Park is tough as nails. You ever watch a game before?

Sure Hunter is a tough player too.....but not for nothing, Hunter and Park are the same kind of tough. Hunter doesn't bang like a Jackman or Witt.....Hunter is just an all around "tough" player; just like Park.

Thank you, come again.

Rebuilding DEFINITELY takes time.....real fans like you and I are the only ones who seem to get that.

You see, there are two types of fans out there. NHL fans, and hockey fans. Seems to me we've got lots of NHL fans on this board LMFAO
