Saturday's Dump & Chase: The Customer Is Always Right!

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

This is what we wanted, right? A top-line forward? Well, we got one, and while it cost us a guy we all really like, this trade represents a real, measurable upgrade to the offense. David Poile is having a pretty good start to the offseason...let's hope he can make one more significant move and give Mr. Neal a quality linemate. This team is certainly shaping up to have a different look from the last couple of seasons, which is a very, very good thing.
