Except for Ference. Who would probably be our worst Dman in the line-up.

Trading away one of our better, more promising players, in Cogliano to allow "the rookies to develop with some skill and veteran players around them" is very counterproductive, to say the least.

We don't need to bring in two veterans who know they're there for 1 year then gone. Can't expect much more than a Nilsson or O'sullivan-esque effort out of them. One year rentals work on contenders, not rebuilders.

We have plenty of veterans on the team, and plenty of players to step in if the rookies start to bomb.
