This is what I was upset about earlier. How did we deal away Staal and Michalek and not address our two vacant winger spots in the top 6? Yeah...I'm including Dupuis in there and that's me being a jerk. He's a great player but you don't put wooden tires on a sports car. I'm cool with Dupuis as a fill-in for an injury or if DB wants to mix things up for a bit, but penciling him in to the top line going into training camp stinks.

But don't worry...we have a million great defensive prospects in the pipeline. Holy lord, trade some of these guys now for insta-help. I don't want to be the team that has the best depth at prospect defensemen. I want to win in the playoffs. It's like a god damn episode of Hoarders. Pick one or two of the defensive prospects you can't live without and make it known the rest are available.

Sorry that I'm crotchety...blame the looming lockout.
