Do you guys think there is a chance we can get a "sniper" before the trade deadline? The only real goal scorer we have is Daniel and Kesler (if he returns to his previous form). Obviously we can't get someone like Kessel or Stamkos but a Semin type player wouldn't be bad.

Haha, no. Jensen's not playing for the Canucks this year. He'll be playing in Chicago.

I was noticing that as well. Only Dan and Raymond are SNP - Kesler is more of a TWF. Jensen is a possibility but I see him maxing out around 74/75 tops.

I think we should look for more PLY (1 for each line) and PWF (1 to play with the Sedins), maybe trade for young players that have AT LEAST 4 star potential.

Kesler was lucky to score 20 this year since the injury to Morrison allowed him to do so.

I doubt Kesler would ever break 15 goals in his career again.

I beg to differ, MG indicated he could expect to see him with the big club this season.

Where is the sniper shop? You can't just "get" players.

A sniper can be any guy on the team who gets hot. I've seen Burr in sniper mode. And grinders indicates hard workers who will go to the dirty areas to dig the puck out, etc. Those are assets in my mind...hard workers.

I'm closing this, as it's not really thought out and more of a passing through you've had. Could have easily used "grinders" as your one word to describe the team in that thread (with a quick line about how you think we need snipers).
