I like how our team isn't going to be around forever, but we also shouldn't rely on prospects. Yeah, all those high quality 26 year-olds are there every time the window opens, right? Teams are practically giving talent like that away.
I don't see the point in continuing to argue about Petry/Sbisa, but as for the latter, I'm just saying that Beauchemin is an older guy, and by the time the Ducks are ready to compete again, he'll be even older, and that at the same time your prospects aren't 100% locks to be top-2 defensemen. Geez, get off your high horse. That same sentence could be applied to every single team who's rebuilding right now. I'm not attacking Anaheim.
