well... there is nothing like a GM doesn't like to trade with Lombardi.
If Lombardi would offer something to improve other GM's team they would bite.

What we are looking for is a league wide weakness.
We have around 3-4 high scoring left wings.
I could be wrong but i don't see anyone else than Ovechkin, Semin, Nash and Kovalchuk...
This means the price is on an all time high for this position now when everyone has at least two #1 goalies.

The next thing is, would a high scoring winger make a big difference in our system.
I mean c'mon it's not that our wingers aren't able to push the puck into the netting form 5 inch away because of a deadly pass by the center.
A Nash or Ovechkind would face the same trouble to score from the sideboards pinned against by 2 opponents.

Right now i'm absolutely happy with making no trade.
Actually i would be happy with doing no trades as long as Lombardi is here.
The risk of pulling another Purcell is simply to high.
We have the prospects and the core to build our team from within.
The real problems to face is the coaching staff and the mentality of the GM.

We have to ask ourself, where do we wanna go and is what we are doing good enough to go there.
Everyone has to answer that for himself
