J_B and I were holding out that it might happen---it didn't.

I could cut and paste my rant from last November, that I want a long-term building plan put into action with the team targeting specific young players from other teams with which to build around. They missed out on trying to force a Zhitnik-Satan for Williams-Pitkanen deal (thankfully for Clarke IMO). But that doesn't mean they can't target specific high-end youngsters from teams looking for this year's Butch Goring, the guy who'll get them over the hump and into the Finals, or from teams who have the talent but need to change. Satan is highest on the list for that sort of deal, but the proper sort of package timed properly might just land someone on the order of Svitov or Seminov...

No matter how things change, some things stay the same.
