Now I know this was mentioned in the Marchell blog by sharkiesgirl, but I felt it deserved it's own thread...
Pollack made a small note that qualifying offers have been extended to Ryane Clowe, Christian Ehrhoff, and Marcel Goc.
I'm happy that talks with Clowe are progressing. The team really needs him back, and if he can stay healthy, will be a great attribute next season.
At first, I had mixed feelings about Ehrhoff. He showed great ability at times, and at others severely disappointed me. But then I read something that gave me a new opinion on Ehrhoff and now I will be disappointed if he doesn't return. I never realized it, but he has a career +/- rating of +31....that's really freakin good for a guy in his position (I was skeptical of this at first and checked out his player profile to confirm its true) . If his play-off performance was solely attributed to his "ankle injury" then I will feel very confident in his return. Check out the article that gave me the insight and gauge for yourself:
Goc is the one I don't like the idea of returning, but someone on the Marchell thread mentioned his performance could be directly linked to RW (which can be said about many on the team) and the style of play being adopted at the time. If that is the case, hopefully McLellan can bring out the best in him once again.
I trust Doug Wilson as a GM and am confident that he is picking specific players that will fit into the future style that McLellan is planing on implementing. Or at least I hope...
