Hello there! Long time no speak!
In past years, we got in the habit of asking at the opening of every show "Has _____ signed yet?". Whether it was Vladimir Tarasenko, or Alex Pietrangelo, or whoever, there was always one loose end that needed to be tied up. This year, we have everything done before July ended. The last major piece of the puzzle (aside from the fans, natch) was Jaden Schwartz . With his signing, and the other RFAs, and the expectation that Vladimir Sobotka is coming back, we now have our cap-limit and contract-limit team. Also, it looks like Kevin Shattenkirk will be with us for another season - which ain't a bad thing. We talk about these things, and then speculate about the line combinations. There are a lot of questions about this team leading into camp, and we'll have to wait until the dust settles before we can answer them. All this, and a few chuckles along the way -
Give it a listen, eh?
