Does that mean Ray Shero and his precious defensive prospects are the dam?

So, let's see where we're at . . .

Tarasenko injury means forget about Stewart/mpp9 on suicide watch.

Iginla will cost a ton, might not re-sign, might play old in three years if he does.

Kulemin is worth TK and a 2nd, adds a different third line guy for Malkin and Neal who likely will have marginal if any impact.

Malone gets injured, not worth 4.5M, if Tampa eats a third of the cap hit, then he's worth TK and a 2nd.

Perry is a wet dream.

Anyone care to add?

EDIT: Forgot one . . . Shero so infatuated with perfection of James Neal trade that it has become his threshold for what represents an acceptable risk.
