Why would Dallas want CF instead of AG?
How the heck would we put BOTH those salaries on our PR?
With 2 Dmen out, trading a third, who do you think was gonna' man our 3rd pairing - 2 rookies in their first year? Even with the upside Neal would bring, Trotz approach/system aside, you think a team makes any kinda' run in the POs with a 3rd pair of 2 kids that would have 20 games under their belt?

I'd like a wing that could put the puck in the net consistently, but this board desperately wanted one and even though they were happy to get Fisher there was still moaning that we needed a wing, not a center. Good thing we got that center. I think the same thing kinda' applies to our D - while it woulda' been nice to move Franny for a gifted wing it's a good thing Poile has held onto those assets for a little longer than most of use would have.

Those are also results - the ability to fill openings with guys that can play, rather than fill with guys who are barely adequate AHLers, as many in the west have done all year.
