I'm in the camp that Poile should have made a move yesterday to add some scoring depth. And by the looks of yesterday's deals, it could have been done without "selling the farm". Everyone's spin on their GM not making a move is always "well we didn't sell the farm", but you don't always have to sell the farm to make a deal.
ok, I can get on board with that.

Im just aggravated because there is no good reason we couldnt have had Antropov or Vermette. It stinks that we didnt ship VK out, knowing we are going to scratch him, and let him free this summer with no return.

for what it is worth, I consider Forsberg a bust. We gave up a lot to watch him play a handful of games. It was very exciting at the time but the aftertaste is still bitter.
