You can get other pieces through trades and picks, but franchise Dmen of that caliber dont come along very often. I guess we'll just have to wait and let time tell.

Ryan Murray will not only make the team next time there is NHL hockey, but will be a standout player almost immediately.

The New York Islanders didn't offer us seven draft picks to move up two spots and select Griffin Reinhart, I can say that without question.
I figure out of all fan bases, we should be the ones who have most clearly seen that it's not at all about the physical tools in terms of who becomes a star...or a third-liner...or an NHLer at all.

I'm still waiting for Kiel McLeod to become an AHL-caliber player like his physical tools would dictate. And if not him, then Gilbert Brule. And if not him, then damn near anyone drafted between 2000-06.
