LOL, round, round, we go. Mike Lawyer Speak GillisHockey Widow wrote:He said something like:
He likes the core
There will be changes
Every aspect of the organisation will be reviewd
Biggest changes may come in the form of younger players getting significant roles and being allowed to grow and develop in game situations
Cautioned media to not jump to conclusions about anything he a says as he obviously won't go into detail but not to expect big or major changes to the core as he thinks we still have the ore together the job done
In others he has covered all bases. There will be changes, maybe big changes, no one exempt from review, but the core is good so the changes will be in younger players, but big changes are coming. Triple speak.
I fully expect our line-up to look something like this next season
Hank, Dank, Kassian
Booth, Kesler, Burrows
Higgins, Schroeder, Hansen
Weise, (New Guy), Pinnizotto
The Major Changes, Gillis speaks of, the rookies getting fully duty - Schroeder, Corrado, Lack. If Schroeder is moved, insert Gaunce. No way Gaunce wastes time here playing limited minutes on the 4th line. Gillis just said he is desperately looking to find a Malhotra for the 4th line.
Sweeping Changes Dat. Bold Moves Dat. We will be the Calgary Flames for the next 5 years, slowly dipping each season, hovering above .500 hockey scraping into the line-up, constantly tinkering with the bottom 6, making bad tades sacrificing the future for journeyman veterens, and eventually, we will be where Calgary is now, once the Sedins are gone. Bold Moves Gillis, there you have it.
