I love our young D as much as anyone but you can't say that right now 1-8 they are NHL ready players. Imagine Valentenko makes the team and then is suddenly thrusted into more ice time and responsibility he isn't ready for due to injuries and a lack of other ready players? Or Del Zotto where we know his problem is confidence. This puts the team in a position of need thus having to pay more for a trade.
Better safe than sorry is my thinking. How is signing White under those circumstances a bad thing on a one year deal? 1-1.5 is what I'm hoping we can get White for.
Because White sucks. He gets beat on the outside all game long, misses his neutral zone interference play and never catches up, he doesn't move the puck for **** and causes icings.
The fact that we have a young defense is NO EXCUSE for signing a bad player.
