However, just a warning to DAChampion and all of us are for this. Hockey is not like Basketball in which the results are very predictable. A lot of unlikely things can happen in the NHL.

If Markov becomes the general,
If Subban improves his point shot
If, if, if....

Even if we made no moves at all and left our team they way it was, we could literally pull an Ottawa this season and sneak into the playoffs which would be horrible. In that case, be prepared for the onslaught of people thinking you were wrong even though that would not be the case.

Basically in hockey, no matter how much Bergevin tries to increase our chances of getting a high draft pick, things might still screw up!
If we're in 8th place at the deadline then we should be able to get more value for our veterans on the market than if we are in 14th place.

I agree that Hockey >> Basketball.
