If your team doesn't want to move key players,they should sign a ufa. Berard,Yushevich and Tverdovsky are all still unsigned.
It's not that the league is really watered down - it's that teams like Detroit, Colorado, and the Isles have three or four top pairing Dmen each. I mean heck, you know there is a real lack of parity in the league when a team has Lidstrom, Hatcher, Schnieder, and Chelios. All who would be number ones on about half of the leagues other teams. If Chicago has the money and are willing to give up assets, then they could find a #1.
