Given JR's recent track record on picking up marginally talented players (Kaberle, Nodl, Poni, Stewart), I'd rather stick with the young guys who have less experience, but I'd argue MAY turn out to be far more talented. Whenever JR picks up some marginally talented over the hill re-tread or "reclamation" project, then the board complains about not providing any slots for the young guys.

My $0.02 is don't go pick up some has been. See what you got in Boychuk, Dalpe, and Bowman. If partway through the season, the team is in the hunt and needs a piece for the playoffs, then fine. If he is going to trade for someone or pick someone up now, then make sure it's a talented and useful player.
