Recently I've heard Riku is returning to europe for family reasons, I do not know if it is just for the holidays or long term...
Your goaltending depth is a bit questionable with a moody starter (who I do like) in Bryzgalov, and 2 backups that don't seem to be able to gain ground in their current organizations, Griess and Bernier (both are good to keep and wait)... But prospect wise, I'd looke higher ceiling or closer to oppertunity... I understand you have a deeper league thust goalies will be at a permium... send me a list of what is out there in a PM and I'll discuss more with you...
Depending how quickly you want those prospects, Vesey is likely staying at Harvard for 2-3 more years before he turns pro... Maybe you can find a higher or close guys if you want and re-aquire him later... that said his value will jump if he has a good WJC, or he will stay a bit unknown... that said if he continues producing in the NCAA Hobey Baker nominations will but him on everyone's radar....
I don't see Filatov helping you, let anouther manager pray on him... You seem to have youth on your team, but your depth is questionable... I'd try and get rid of Filitov for a North American that would provide depth and is very close to call ups... similer to Wellman, Wandell and Conacher...
You have a Great D core, and great prospects back there... maybe take advantage of moving 1 or 2 of them for improvements on Wing and G depths... Reilly, Morrow, Petrovic, Hamilton and Murphy will all arrive at the same time... followed by questionable arrivals...
Thanks for the input. If I cut ties with someone, I have to be sure I'm done with them. I've cut a few in the past who were sleepers and others have since pounced on them.
