I really really like this! Sure I was hoping for McLellan all along but starting over with fresh blood like this is really nice. I Guess Hexy will go with youth for now. This signing is not about winning the cup next year but maybe winning it twice about 3-4 years from now.
Right now this probably the biggest positive for me. You can't expect this guy to come in and win a Stanley Cup this year or next year. This means that Hextall is really, truly committed to building the team patiently and that Snider is on board with that. To me, that's huge.
