Having 1/3 of your budget invested in two players never easy. 18 more players to go.

Pittsburgh gets a way with it, but it's not easy. They surround Malkin and Crosby with 2nd-3rd tier wingers, and average dmen, but Malkin and Crosby are THAT good.

As good as Suter/Weber can be, they haven't carried us, and we haven't had playoff success with this "defense first" approach. I would welcome the chance to trade one of them for a bonafide young offensive force.

The other thing is we could lose Weber and Suter for nothing in 2 years. They might want to test UFA. They might want to play for a team where they have a better shot of winning. Poile needs to get a feel for this now. They are are two biggest assets, and we can't see either of them go for nothing.
