I feel we don't need to add as much. And can't afford to rip apart the roster and farm system for a guy like Ryan, who I LOVE by the way. I think we would lose too much in the trade.

Im just hoping for Ruutu. And maybe a faceoff guy.

We added Staal. We are going to add Sauer sooner or later. Those are big acquisitions off the IR.

We MAY not be 100% there yet. But im content to allow Kreider the chance to be the missing piece. Our depth is impressive now, soon it will be great.
Im not okay with letting a rookie try to be the missing piece in our quest for the cup this year. Next year after he could potentially have a decent amount of NHL experience under his belt? Sure.
