Right, but lateral moves for similar-to-weaker won't have that much of an impact if you keep a guy of Timonen's quality around. Take out Timonen, and you'll see a notable drop in the level of play. I mean, remember what happened when we lost Desjardins. Guys like Pitkanen went from looking OK (very very good in Pitkanen's case) to the team being a complete disaster.
