Why does it have to be always about winning the cup? That was the whole point of the post.

We have 4, yes count them, 4 UFA defensemen this summer, and one RFA. Searching for viable replacements and improving the defense corps is crucial, both to this year and the next. Its not always about `this year` its about having a direction for the club and improving continually.

Our system is based on goaltending and a strong defensive corps, so it would make sense to address that, particularly because it is in question for next season. If you see the right move to improve the depth on forward, you do it, but its not the end of the world if you donīt. Offense is much easier to address, both within the organization and by other avenues.

If you can acquire Phillips for cheap, resign Wiz, Hammer and Markov. Flip Weber and Spacek for picks or forwards. Then you have something nice to work with for next year.

Phillips
Markov
Wiz
Hammer
Gorges
Subban

That is good corps going forward. Then you can add some pieces up front and you DO HAVE A SHOT AT THE CUP, like you are so fixated on.
