If all I wanted was a player who is ready, I wouldn't need to get an average-to-below-average rookie with no experience. I would go out and sign a nice 28-year-old role player, and you know that those guys come pretty cheap.

But the funny thing about these forums is that a 28-year-old vet who knows how to play NHL hockey is treated as worse, far worse, than a 20-year-old role player who keeps making rookie mistakes, and does not have the potential to ever be anything more than that very 28-year-old.

It's all about emotions, not logic, for most fans...
You woulda turned down Jessiman + Dawes for lets say Shane Doan? I bet you would have a few years ago and that goes to show how your logic can backfire. You make it sound like every prospect is a sure fire NHL player and star about to happen.
