I am not sure what to make of things. I was excited at the coming of UFA time but the lack of anything going on has left me a little bummed out. I read this comment from Doug Wilson “We’re a better team now than we were at the beginning of last season.”
Ok excellent...but how is San Jose a better team now than it was last year at this time? Bernier is not here and he showed a lot of promise. Does not having Semenov mean we are that much better (I could agree with this part of it). We have kept Jody Shelly, this guy I am not sure what to make of him. I do enjoy reading his lips when he is telling the other team what he thinks of them. His impact on the ice was nothing I thought was great, he was on par with Scott Parker.
San Jose has a hole on the blue line that needs to be filled. The team needed some changes, we got part of that in a new coach. I do belive for this team to get over the 2nd round we should have tried to get and sign an impact UFA.
This is my first blog so if you have constructive critisim feel free to post it up.
