Not fascination - I just believe in getting multiple guys rather than a one for one asset trade. I'd rather have 3 prospects that could maybe provide help. I feel like we're putting all of our eggs in the basket with Del Zotto on this trade, and I'm not particularly sold on him. I'm also weary that he's probably underpaid and going to look for a bigger deal quickly (around the same time as Stastny, Duchene, and Lando). Prospects would push out cap expenditures further down the line.
