Well, I'm not gonna fully defend Lacroix, because I'll admit, I'm still a little fuzzy on why the Reinprecht trade went down. But he surely felt a little more solid having a healthy Marek Svatos around as well as Brian Willsie--both could be considered top 6 talent.

I haven't seen Willsie play in over a year, but last time he was around for an extended duration he essentially was a top 6 forward -- heck, he was the Avs best forward for a few games.

And Svatos, although unproven was labelled by many (including yourself I believe) as being strictly top-6 talent, and therefore should be sent down to the AHL for the time being.

Ideally Reinprecht would have been better to be bumped up to the top 6, but I don't think PL expected to lose both Svatos and Willsie so soon (well, maybe just Svatos).
