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.
Ok, Boom Boom, I am on board with that. Thank you for straightening out my train of thought as I have been on the "make room for the kids" side for a while. I lost my mind for a few minutes.....potentially due to the fact that it seems these kids have come up short of my expectations these last few years.
