No one is advocating trading for an Ozolinsh type. We need some depth, if Torts and Sather believe this the the 6 he wants to go to war with then he will trade for a 7th d-man (ie Vandermeer, Staios, etc.) but if Sather and Torts feel this team needs a veteran d-man to chew up some minutes he will go after a Tyutin, Carkner, etc.
We traded a d-man for zherdev and that failed, so does that mean this deal is also a failure? Just because his trades in the past have stunk doesn't mean this one particularly will. There is a trend, he trades for a d-man for the playoffs. Sather just has to be smart about who he trades for and what he gives up, I hope we don't trade for an offensive minded d-man and thats why the name McCabe and Pitkanen scare me.
