Time will tell but both have been steady so far. He went after them early and aggressively in the FA process which enabled him to shape the team. I am sure having them and their salaries on the books made the Forsberg signing easier when the opportunity unexpectedly arose. If our defense was up in the air and we were still in the market for Neidermeyer or other defenesemen I don't know if the Forsberg signing would have happened (although we'll never know).
