Depth is there? take your time, trade a prospect for picks or player/prospect.
Defensive system? Any goalie will do (Phoenix, St-Louis)
Offensive system with no defense? Best goalie is needed (Ottawa, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia)
GM under pressure? Panic, trade your prospects, rush what ever is left to the NHL, and sell (overrate) their talents to the fans (Burke)
GM in a non hockey market? who cares?
Warning: do not take this post too seriously
