I also don't see why this top 6 forward has to be a PF. Alex Tanguay for example would have been a much better fit and a guy we could have very realisitically signed had we tried.

Having something be in the realm of possibility and completed are two totally different things. It's what makes a team like VAN go after a player like Booth. Top6ers are seldom available, and if they are, they have options. Or, in the case of Tanguay, they don't meet the criteria of management.

For whatever reason, the "other" solution wasn't brought in, but we do have Booth...

DTS revelation: If you can bring in an upgrade, you do it.
