We need to get aggressive. Picks and prospects are nice but getting to the next level comes at a price. What is 2013+2014+Klefbom worth. Does that get us in a conversation for M Staal? OEL? Shattenkirk? If it does we should have that conversation. I think Klefbom can be the equal of these others but that is a couple years from now. We need to speed things up.
But if we're looking for a #1, why don't we look at one that might actually be available. One that isn't currently on a Stanley Cup favourite or one that isn't already seen as a team's future franchise defenseman.
What would it take to bring in Brian Campbell? Or Keith Yandle? Or maybe bring up the Jay Bouwmeester debate again.
