I was initially skeptical of the dman-centric asset strategy, but almost every team has room for a d-man. If you focus on centers, certain teams won't be interested, ie. Pens, King, Flyers, Bruins. Or if you focus generally on forwards and a couple LW pan-out and you don't have space for them all. Several franchises (Pens are an example again) wouldn't find value in trading a quality player/prospect for a specific position in which they are already well-positioned.

It's much easier to trade Simon Despres for a position where you are lacking than Jeremy Morin or Taylor Beck b/c there are a lot more trading partners and therefore potential fits.
