This could be the SEN's, our, Bryan's run to failure moment...trading Vermette and now Kelly were/are not great hockey moves, but eventually you have to move some guys out of the middle of your line up to make room for some fresh blood. The one thing it does present to you is the chance to pick up/up-grade the offence but if you think about it both of these guys had the skill and potential to score big time and didn't!
I like it, it's like going "all in"...now ya gotta draw the cards! And don't kid yourself there is a lot of know-how, luck and skill involved here.
We strongly recommend drafting all skilled forwards, big skilled forwards and more thick skilled forwards...ya can always convert 'em to defencive specialists after if you have to...
Now we (Eugene) gotta give Bryan another contract!
