Young or relatively young players that can have long futures with the team so you can deal away prospects and still say you are building for long term success.
On this we agree, but who is to say that Tallon isn't working those angles as we speak.

Perhaps he brought Parros is as a way of getting Ryan. I am not saying that that is why we signed him. On the other hand, do we know that it didn't play a role.

I really hate being thrust into the "apologist" role, but I just don't see a reason to panic prematurely.
