True, but if you try to get into Martin's way of thinking don't you come up with the thought of "I have all these forwards under contract next season, I have 3 top notch scoring forward prospects in the system who all should be on my 23 man roster within 2 years and I think my most pressing need is a puck moving defenseman of which I don't have any in the system ready to challenge for a roster spot in the next 2 years, why in the world should I expend any significant money or assets on forwards when I can use that to fill my primary need and have those 3 prospects ready to plug in in 2009/10 when most of those deadweight contracts, Stumpel, Peltonen and Zednik, that are almost impossible to get rid of now so I would have to buy them out, have expired?"

PS-Wasn't that the longest single sentence posted in memory on this site?
