I say Niagara should go for it.
We don't have the assets to make that happen. We only own one 2nd round pick in the next 3 years, and we have more needs than that. IMO the team is 2 top-4 D, 2 2nd line forwards and a #1 Goalie away from contending. We just don't have the assets to make it happen.

We can get large packages for Strome and Hamilton, something very reasonable for Ritchie, and something of value for Theoret and maybe Shipley.

The focus right now is to a build a contending team for when the new arena opens in 2014.
