We need to have a long term strategy with our farm....we might have been able to get weber if we had 4 first round picks sitting in the minors or on the roster...but we have zero depth...we can't absorb that kind of hit...bc it's been wasted.
You bring up some good points. I think one day we may look back at the weber thing and it may be a blessing in disguise. it is difficult to imagine what our farm system would look like without 4 first rounders.
I understood the versteeg deal at the time because he was a RFA still, and richards was basically playing by himself at times out there.
The pronger deal got us to within a avg nhl goalie's chance of a cup. I will say this though, draft picks are hit or miss. and somtimes a known quantity is better than potential.
You are damned if you damned if you don't and these things are always 20 20 hindsight.
