Bringing in Pitkanen at the expense of Tyutin means we're going to gain a better talent but we're going to lose some physical play--something we don't have a lot of. Bringing in Orpik to replace that physical play means we're going to be spending maybe too much of our leftover money on our defense. I like Drury but that contract hurts--he should be in the $4.5-5 mil range. Gomez $5.5-6. Prucha's is another contract that is too high. Anyhow we're not going to be able to buy enough players to fill all the holes. We're going to have to depend on the farm. Pitkanen is intriguing but it all depends on what we have to give up.
