I don't want a shiny new toy this spring. I'd much prefer to continue to build a team identity and set our chips up to make a big splash when our core is ready to carry us deep into the playoffs and just need a highly specialized piece or two to put them over the top.
Yeah, I totally agree. I'm ok with our shiny new toy being Wolski because he's been playing really well as of late and also, I like the kid. Let's see what this team can do. The only thing we may want to add is a veteran presence on D, but only if it's really really cheap. Otherwise, I'm ok with rolling the dice with what we've got.

Oh, unless that shiny new toy is a player like Stastny and only if the trade is another one of the good ones that Sather has been pulling off.
