McElhinney is good backup, but yeah, we already have one. I don't really care about Domingues aspirations, if we don't have a trade in place it makes no sense.

Using similar logic maybe Vinik should hire another GM so we already have one in place next year when JBB has to be fired for the team losing in the first round again after his big off season acquisitions were a 3rd goalie and a RHD that cleared waivers twice the previous season because he is trash.

He also talked about McElhinney being a veteran presence to replace Stralman and Girardi...

Uhhh... What?

If we're not moving Domingue then I'm at a loss.

It's especially dumb when talking about a backup goalie. What kind of presence is that?

Are we certain there wasn't a deal set that fell through?

LMFAO. There's been a healthy amount of chicken little around these parts in the last decade, but this might be the worst case I've read.

We've got so much. So much veteran presence.

I don't see much of an indication that anything significant is going to be done between now and beginning of the season but I hope I am proven wrong.

6 straight playoff losses, we can go with Cooper and say it was a fluke but I say it is a trend and I don't see anything that has been done to address it. Again, hope I am wrong, but 3 of those 6 losses I have paid good STM money to see in person and I want to see something that shows me changes are being made to turn that around.

You want change just for the sake of change? Good luck with that. Rick Dudley is your dream GM.

I would have liked Pavelski for 5.5 and 2-3 years. Dallas can have him for the term he received. Minnesota paying Zuccarello what he signed for is dumber yet.

This is why you don't plan on re-making your roster through FAs. You have to wildly overpay on the open market.

Remember when we were all in on every FA? Remember wildly overpaying Matt Carle? Remember signing Ohlund for way too long? Remember signing Filppula for too long (and having to give him a NTC)?

Pepperidge Farms remembers.
