What to do!

Promote the coach to assistant GM, move assistant coach to head coach and sell off your most marketable assets. Stockpile for next year.
There is never a right way to do the wrong thing.

What do you consider marketable assets? Do you trade Suzuki ? My thought is that would have to be a huge trade as he is back next year IMHO. I think the only 2 you would get much for are Friend and Gadjo with the latter bringing ahuge return. That will make the rest of this year extremley painful

Assuming this season is lost, base on a large sample size, you've got to a decide who goes forward with the team.

Let's decide the team is being built around Dudas and Guzda.

You need to build a core who will be here in two years.

Beamish, Chibrikov, Lyle. Struthers, Roberts, Groulx, Moro, Russell, Doherty.

A top priority is another starting goalie. Never again should the team fall into this predicament.

Everyone else should be available.

The tricky part is how many of the other guy's go ? How ugly are you prepared to let the rest ofthis season and next get ? I guess it depends on what other GM's are offering who goes. I believe Gadjo Suzuki and Friend and maybe Hancock would bring enough return to let them go. I sure am glad DD is the one making these decisions.

I think the Attack are going to be better next year so be careful with what is traded if that is the decision Dale makes this year.

Build next years team around Suzuki and Dudas.

Your GM isn't alone in facing this dilemma. The Knights are also sitting right on the fence this season, unsure of whether to buy or sell. Just hypothetically, imagine if the Knights let it be known that they'd be willing to trade Cliff Pu, and Joseph Raynmakers (sp?) would Attack fans view that possible bundle as being attractive enough to make an offer ? Would you feel that either player, or both, would fill a couple of holes on your present roster ? You'd be getting a bona-fide OHL calibre goaltender, along with a top 6 centre capable of not only scoring & playmaking, but has one of the better face-off percentages.

Your thoughts ?
Because I don't agree with your point, doesn't mean that I "don't get it". The possibility exists that I get it.....but still don't agree.
