The Kids Are Alright.
Toronto have an interesting problem going into camp September 13th. There are simply too many defenseman vying for too few jobs. Yes, as the saying goes, this is a good problem to have, but when does it become wasteful having $5M defenseman in your top three spots with a plethora of cost-efficient and very talented youngsters waiting in the wings?
Camp will shed some light on just how ready some of these guys are, but the possibility of moving out a big ticket defensemam and freeing up $5M or so to make some other moves has to be on JFJ's mind. With players like Rick Nash maybe available from Columbus and Peter Forsberg considering playing at some point this year, there certainly are opportunities to add some punch if the cap room is there.
Oh, and according to Blogger, this is the Battle of Ontario's 1000th posting!
That's quite a milestone.
I'm glad I had the opportunity to use it for the good guys.
