Not at all. I'm all for DL making a huge push, whether it's signing a UFA (Kovalchuk) or landing a big name forward in trade. I'm not for him expending significant assets for guys who do not solve our needs. We need a legitimate front line forward who can score 40 goals and we may also need a second line centre. Booth, Penner, etc are neither, and if a guy like Versteeg costs a 1st and a 3rd, I can only imagine what Edmonton now thinks they can get for Penner and Hemsky or Florida thinks they can get for Booth, all three of whom are not a 40 goal scorer or a 2nd line centre.
If saving our assets to maximize their value and add something we NEED means I'm a wuss, then fine. I'm glad to be a wuss.
