Well... I mean, I guess that's good.

But, we're sure spending a lot of money on players who can't seem to get this team to the playoffs. I'm not saying Faulk doesn't deserve it but we have so much money tied up in the Staal's, Semin, Skinner, Faulk, and Ward and yet here we are in 11th place or so.

I think JR is scared that if he gives short term contracts to those guys they'd outplay them and bolt for more money later on so this is his way of keeping them around.  Unfortunately when they start to fade we're left with a massive cap hit and an untradeable player.

Apparently JR is expected to give up his GM duties at the end of the year... finally.

I know you already know this, but lets face it. We have a goalie who looks like he is primed and ready to be  top 10 at his position for years to come. The roster is LOADED just loaded with young talent. What does that tell me? It's a coaching problem. Get a coach who is proven and knows how to develop young talent and we will be killer next season.

Obv we should have just let him go he isn't ever going to get better ever

 

There aren't too many 27-28 year old defensemen in the league that you watch and say "Man I wish he was as good as he was at 21".  He's gonna have his rough spots but its almost a certainty he's going to get better.

You don't give a player that just had a terrible season a 6 year fuging extension. He's got to at least prove he can improve first before you give him an over half a decade extension.

You are just about the only person that would call his season terrible
