My favourite memory of Umberger...
Ferarro is the shit.

You mean like the guys he picked up last year that helped get us to within one win of a Stanley Cup?
Oh and then resigned to very reasonable contracts for this season and have played an integral role in the continued success of the team.
On second thought I think you misspelled Gillis, you must have meant Nonis.
RoyalDude wrote:Well, Lappy and Higgins, I assume you are talking about have been pretty serviceable but seriously dude, this team is built around a core group of franchise type players who go by the name of the Sedins, Kesler, Luongo, Edler, Salo, Bieksa, Hamhius, Burrows, Schneider. I guess what I was trying to convey is that there seems to be a load of chatter and desire to land big named players come deadline but I just don't see it. What I see is Gillis doing is his usual at the deadline, trading mid-range picks for role players. And sometimes they work out and sometimes they don't. At the end of the day, they ain't the impact player(s) that some of you are hoping for, ie Nash, Perry, Carter, Suter, Weber, Parise etc.
