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.
Pitkanen wasn't part of the supposed deal.It was Woywitka and Williams.If it was Pitkanen,no doubt Regier would have jumped at that deal.
