BTW, Kyle Turris (a prospect who was dealt for at not a huge price) is lighting it up in Ottawa. They're 12-2-2 since picking him up. THAT's the kind of gamble that we should be taking. YOUNG players with potential.
Turris could easily evolve into a bonafide number 1 center. That's exactly the kind of player that we should be trying to get. Instead we spin our wheels with crap like Kaberle.
I mostly agree with you but I don't think Ottawa paid a small price for Turris. The equivalent we would have had to pay seeing what they gave is something like Beaulieu++ and I much prefer keeping Beaulieu and getting an impact foward with our high pick.
