I have to admit, they have performed beyond my expectations of late, but success is contingent upon Schneider playing stellar, and then the rest of the team playing a grinding defensive system. I would have to believe that there would be some takers somewhere for Ballard!? Sure there's some entertainment value in Ballard being a winger but ... REALLY? That's the best you can do mr MG? Not sure what has happened to the Sedin's of late? Talk about hot and cold.,..a nd when they're cold they look like anemic sad sacks - they didn't get a whole lot of time last night against the Coyotes and for good reason. The coyotes are struggling, and that had a lot to do with why we won. I would be willing to bet money that we will get 'man-handled' in LA on Saturday unless Schneider can find a way to pull off a 2012 `Quick playoff performance'.
But honestly, does Gillis believe that it's ok to 'putter along' like this? Is the market that tight that he can't wrest out a single player deal to our benefit? Just saying. Jeese.

herb wrote:^ Not sure what you could really expect any GM to do when half of your god damn forwards are injured.
What would you expect he do? Pick up some waiver wire garbage? Sign some crusty old FAs who haven't played in months? Trade several draft picks and prospects for (very) short term solutions?
