If you have a chance to get Gibson at a decent price, you do it. Also acquiring a Trochek provides sniper insurance in case something happens to Griffith.
May I remind you of the year that the Knights made relatively no moves because they had Kane and Gagne and thought 'next year is our year'. We went on to lose to Plymouth that year, and like that, they were gone that offseason. (sidenote: I still find it amazingly funny that Kane the next year played the first preseason game, scored four goals and got an assist (5points) and at the end of the preseason he still was the leading point getter)
All it takes is for a team to draft Horvat and/or Domi and put them in their lineup because they stink. Combine that with some overage bad luck and nobody comes back. This could happen.
Wildcard factor: we have Mark Hunter. Lets worry about next year, next year. If we have no goalies going into next year, Hunter will get one, relax.
If you really want to be serious about making a run this year, you need to keep up with the Jones'. And Halifax just acquired MacAuley from St John who is an overage shotblocking penalty killing specialist who also has 20 something goals. Sounds like they just acquired their 'Austin Watson".
