In case one of them gets injured. I'm not comfortable with either Drewiske or Harrold starting in the playoffs.

There's a reason why DD44 didn't get used in the POs last year. He hasn't been the same since the shoulder injury. Harrold is OK, but was terrible in the playoffs last year.

I'm not talking about giving up significant assets. Just a mid round draft pick for a decent depth guy rental. That's all. Kind of like how we got Modin as a depth forward, in exchange for a 7th round pick.

Indeed. There may have been nothing available for a reasonable price. Perhaps "failed" is the wrong word.
