There's a reason why Calgary added a 2nd rounder and Patrick Holland. There's a reason why the consensus of fans on this board thought we should have gotten more.
d) Prust is a good rebuilding move, I don't consider him a negative. In the same way that Eller benefited from playing with Moen, some other youngster will benefit from playing with Prust.
However, he won't replace Kostitsyn's goal scoring.
e) I've responded to your point about injuries. Habs are an elite injury team year in and year out. It's a constant.
f) I want more 1st rounders in 2013.
The reason Calgary added a pick and a prospect is because Feaster lost his mind, not because Cammalleri is worth 6 mil/year. This is the same GM that gave away Reghr and signed Wideman for over 5 mil/year and doesn't believe in a rebuild when his only 2 stars are over 35 and his farm system is bottom 2 or 3 in the NHL.
