I would disagree with firing BT. As for Johnny, I think we either trade him or get him a McKinnon like center to play with him. Monahan is not that center so either we trade Monahan or we trade them both. Johnny is my favorite player, but I can see how easily he can be shut down in the playoff if he is without his line mates support. I think this team got into a habit of sloppy defense and only to give half efforts majority of games. All the third period come back is an indication that the team will only play one third of a game and not entire game. This can not be the team next year. I think BT will be fixing this in the off season. The very first thing BT needs to do is getting rid of Brodie. I think Hamonic should play with Gio as first pair, Valimaki and Anderson as a second pair, Hanifin should play as third pair. The second thing BT must do is to get us a true #1 goalie. I believe that we need players with heart and grit but if we can't win in the regular season, there is no playoff so I think we still need a player like Johnny to get us to the playoff. Johnny is a great player and if he gets us first or second overall pick, we should do it. If we traded Johnny, we should trade Monahan, Neal, Backlund, Janko. and now we are in the tear down mode. Our first line is too soft and that have to change.
