We know gmmg is a patient, calculated man so he for sure has a plan b if we dont get Doan. So what is it? Is there another player we can target available for trade that is in the same mold as Doan. Guys like Clowe, Simmonds or Hartnell. I doubt these 3 are available. When we lost to the Hawks and they won the cup Gillis saw how the nhl game was being called, it benifited trNsition fast skating teams. We made changes and traded for Ehrhoff, Higgins, Lappy etc. Now he has made comments about how the nhl is changing again and w. Bruins and Kings winning the last 2 cups u can bet gillis is going to make us a bigger more bruising team.
Also i dont believe Arnott is our backup plan if we dont get Doan. If anything he is our safety plan for keslers injury. He doesnt answer what gmmg is looking for in a top 6 rols. Also for those who wants arnott in a nux jersey, this guy is a notorious AHOLE to rookies and young players. Arnott thinks they are trying to take over his job. He is the oppoIte of a mentor someone u wouldnt want around kass, schroeder or jensen.
So whats our backup plan folks? I doubt the lu trade will attain us a top 6 forward unless we package him w. An edler or tanev. That just fills a hole by creating a hole. Who can we realistically trade for to solidify our top 6 come playoff time. Sedin Sedin Burr Kes Booth X ????
