Nuxfanabroad Posted January 9, 2015 Share Posted January 9, 2015 Deja vu all over again? It does sorta' feel like early 2014, albeit our coach is a tad less volatile. I see the 50ish game mark as a key point, where big decisions should be made. Twelve more to play; 7 at home, & a 5-game RT. Would bring us to Feb. 7th. Traditionally, Van teams have hit a slide around this Jan/Feb period, so I feel this stretch should show us what we've got. next gm:Cal, Road Trip: Nash, Philly, Car, Flor, TBay back home: Ana, Buff, Minny, Winn, SJ, Pitt. If we can get 7 or 8 W's here, I say mostly stay the course. If the team chokes/stumbles badly, trade for youth & create extra cap space for summer activity. The bonus is you never know, sometimes a bunch of young players can get hot & go on a run. If we're listing aimlessly in early Feb, trade Miller for Niemi(he's UFA, so you can quickly dump his hit), & of course a nice, young asset thrown in. IF this is the style they're playing in a month, I REALLY hope JB shuffles more youth into the deck. Allow vets like Burr, Badger, Ham & Higgy to chase the Mug, whilst we cut to the chase. Sure I'll take some heat for this, but it's hard to see this group(mostly healthy right now) going far. Even in their own bldg, they're often pushovers. It seems more & more, cap space is KING.
