This would never happen.

We always rely on our old guys bailing us out for yet another season, and another, and then another.

Guess what, it isn't working and we can't hope to get as lucky with the picks as we've been in the past.

We'll never get a new Lidstrom or Datsyuk on the 6th round.

Prepare for another dead wings era, I've said this for a couple of years now - and it will happen unless this organization agrees to get rid of a couple of the older players for picks - and then have a couple of so-so years.

I say.

Let's see what we can get for Hudler, Franzen, Filppula, Cleary, Stuart and Zetterberg (yeah, I said it. The time has come to shop him since his legs and back are killing him).
yikes thats a little drasstic.

i agree we need to be proactive and i agree overextending outselves by "re-uping" old veterans because we dont have the heart to say no will in the long run hurt us more then help, but, our prospect pool is very deep so our future looks very bright.
