Yes I want him to, but I don't expect that he can. What I can expect is for him not to sign trash players for 4 years.
- JimmyP


Gotta sign someone or your stuck with Fritz Prince etc. again.

Sign Komorov for four years other than that it was 1 year deals. PK was atrocious and hopefully he can help. If he wanted 4 years and Lou wanted him than he has to live with the signing. He will have to deal with it good or bad.

You rather have Fritz Prince? Have to sign someone to compete for spots in camp instead of the same old same old camp where guys have jobs before camp starts?

Again I don’t think there were many all star players or others Lou could have gotten or else I think he would have done it. Just my opinion of course.

If anyone on here knows, truly knows who was available for what in return etc. than I will agree with you. But since none of you Bozos(Me included) have no phucking idea what and who was available and would sign long term here after they were traded for than I think your all full of Shat.

Again give it some time. Should Toews be playing? In everyone’s eyes on here and people who write about hockey think so but Lou L and Trotz don’t. Why I don’t know. I love the kid. I watched him play at QU and he impressed and grew the years he was there much like in BP, however for what ever reason a Lou and Trotz don’t. Maybe they would rather he comes in when trots system is in place longer and he can learn it at the AHL level instead of learning a totally new system and adapting the the faster NHL at the same time which may cause him to lose a bit of his confidence and take a step back. I don’t know but I sure as hell trust Trots and Lou judgement over Art Staple, Cpt fantastic and the Groupthink Girls

What’s the (frank)ing difference. If he was POHO which he is he would be making all the calls.

He does staff gm does roster like in some organizations.

We all have to deal with it. There was no need for a bunch of the moves Lou made this summer. I haven't seen anyone blame Lou for not signing a team of all-stars.

Correct because they weren’t available.

Let the writers tell us who was available and who would come here.

Rather have these guys than the typical cast of charecters we have had in the past.

Said it many times. Might be a long season but at least we have proven guys to change things up in Lou and Trotz.

You mean guys that have proven to (frank) things up? They all have terrible advanced stats thats not gonna change and they arent great players. Idw to hear they will make pk better cause they will most likely give up a ton of goals against 5v5

Talking about Lou and Trots. Changed my post.

Can’t give up more goals 5v5 than last years team. Especially with Trotz behind the bench. Might as well try to address another fault in the PK

Fix pk and goals against yes and that 4th line needs to play the trap or its all over for them. Team could be ok if they play a system and support each other out there i think top two lines will score

Don’t thank me I don’t agree with anything in your post I just don’t have it in me to debate these ridiculous roster decisions. It’s not really debatable.

I figured Lou and Barry would have the pull to get someone like Leo to take a one year deal. 4 years really shocked me and many others. What other team was giving Leo close to 4? It's sounds crazy but I'd rather give Quine a one year deal over giving 4 to Leo. Just think Isles had too many bad contracts already. Hopefully it all works out this year.

Evidently not. Hamilton would have been a huge addition and didn’t go for a whole helluva lot. Maybe he didn’t want to change his number? I figured every player would want to play for the almighty Lou?

Hickey, Pelech , Ladd, Jesus I can’t write this again. Island of bad contracts. There will be some player that had two consecutive terrible seasons available that we can sign for too much money.

I just think this was the offseason to hold firm on one year deals to give a little more time for Wahlstrom, Dobson, Bellows, and Toews. Lou seems a lot less caution in given out deals then he was in the past. I do think they will find a way it's just unnecessary though.

I just expected the hold firm Lou telling players like Leo to take a walk looking for 4 years. Guess I was not following Lou closely enough these last few years?
