just because the "plan" became waiting for the young, high draft picks to mature, doesn't mean you don't have to do anything to help the team in the short term.
when there are players out for the season and you have to ice an AHL defense, the plan didn't say you couldn't bring in help.
If you have 3 of 4 players at centre hurt, following the plan doesn't mean you can't bring in someone when it's obvious you can't just plug Ryan Smyth in there.

"the plan" is nice but reality dictates you have to make some adjustments as you go along.
