You said yourself you kind of wanted him on our team, but then say we are not a play off team. So which is it? Do you want us to perpetually suck or make moves to try to improve our team? If there was a magic button to make us playoff contenders every year dont you think other teams wont use it?
I think of this team as Lego. You need all the pieces to fit to build something good. If you have the wrong peices or they don't fit, you have an incomplete project.
Sorry for completely derailing this thread, but the impatience of some people are starting to piss me off.
I would like him on our team because I think he's a good defensman but not great so he might stick around for a few years until we're good or we could at least shop him for future value.
I know this team isn't one piece away, I'm willing to bet they don't make the playoffs next year reagardless. We shouldn't make one move and trade Iggy, IMO we should make a few moves and trade Iggy, Kipper, JayBow and whoever elese we can because like I said, IMO we're not a playoff team. If we keep everyone we have and don't make it, what have we gained. I think we should target guys like Grossman because he isn't great but might stick around for a rebuild.
If anything, I'm saying I have the patients to go through a whole new young guns era, I lasted through the 90's and I'll do it again. I'd have more patients for a team in a rebuild then a team that thinks 8th place is the goal they should shoot for.
You say your starting to get pissed off with peoples lack of patients, I'm getting pissed off by some peoples dilusions of what this team really is.
We need a rebuild, and we're going to need to do it soon before any and all of our valued assets have no value at all.
