How exactly will adding three very inexperienced rookies to this Blueline .....be " Big"?
Sorry, I don't get it.
We already have a very young defense. Del Zotto will be 20 years old and in his second NHL season.
Staal ...23 years old with three seasons under his belt.
Matt Gilroy, will be 26 years old (come training camp), not even a full NHL season under his belt and he's clueless back there.
Dan Girardi is our best younger defenseman, at 26 years old and three full seasons under his belt (and 34 more regular season games and a brief playoff run).
Then we have Michal " See You In Late February " Rozsival, who at 31 years old still can't show up for 70 % of the games he plays.
As for Wade Redden, well, he ain't getting any better, lately. That's for sure.
This team needs true vetern presence, leadership and toughness on the Blueline; to really help these young kids. And Redden and Rozsival ain't getting it done.
The only way they should be bringing in another young defenseman from the system, is if they find a way to dump Redden, Rozsival and Gilroy. Then, get themselves two real veterns to take their place. Then, add another youngster.
Furthermore, Spagetti ain't getting you a top six forward, unless it's an extensive multi-player deal. Spagetti on his own, gets you a 3rd Rounder....maybe a 2nd Rounder (from another dumb GM), tops. Or another AHLer. Nothing more. O
