I've been supportive of ALL of these players this season and look forward to their futures, but to be realistic:

-Jagr is 39, might not be back next year
-Hartnell is on fire, we already saw him when he was ineffective this season
-Briere is off to a slow start
-JvR is off to a slow start, and is now injured
-Schenn has proven nothing (yet I still think he will)
-Couturier is buried on the 4th line
-Read, Talbot have exceeded expectations and overachieved
-Voracek is a wild card, and an RFA at the end of the season
-...What if Giroux gets hurt?

Just can't pass up this opportunity to strengthen the team imo.
JVR, pacing to major career highs in goals and assists prior to injury, is off to a slow start?
