I think he's saying this because it's the only option. Kind of scary to believe that we are counting on 2 players never having played an NHL game to come in and play a top 6 role for us. Like I said, I guess we have no choice.

Interesting that Trotz notes it's going to be harder to get into the playoffs, because teams below us have made moves to get better, [while Poile has done nothing, including let Radulov float away to Russia].

We are seeing more and more why Washington fired Poile after going to playoffs year after year. He can build a good team, but doesn't have what it takes to build a contender.
