Trade Trouba, let Myers go to free agency. Time for some of the kids to step up, Niku, Samberg, Stanley. I don't know what Buff was smoking the last two games, but he was just not there mentally. Watching him slide helplessly out of the play haplessly trying to defend a two on one on the third goal reminded me of watching my nephew's bantam team. Just not good enough, but Buff is an enigma. I don't know what to do there.
Sign Connor and Laine to long term contracts. Those two guys are our future. I was pretty frustrated with Laine during the season, but in the playoffs he was one of the few guys who showed up and played hard. He's a guy that can take the playoff pounding, and give as good as he gets.
Ehlers - I think I am done with that guy. Won't cry if he gets traded in a package with Trouba. Two playoffs now show how ineffective a little guy like him is in the playoffs. He can get us there, but he won't produce in the rough and tumble. Reminds me of the Sedins that way.
Hellebuyck - redeemed himself for Game 2. I am good with him.
Wheeler - I really am starting to not like that guy very much. I don't know totally why. I just don't see him as a leader. He seems to be getting Andrew Ladd syndrome - believing his own BS. I won't cry if he gets traded.
