The good thing is that generally first forecheckers can be relatively cheap (the less of a shot that they have, the cheaper they are).

Also GMs tend to go bird in hand before all other issues. They won't intentionally open a hole hoping to close it with a second transaction. Unfortunatey, DW has done this a few times. Under the conditions of what the coaches will choose and what the Sharks need on the blueline, that is the primary reason why I can go along with inking White to a new contract.
Which is exactly what I've been saying about White. I think you even stole my bird in hand reference
