You aren't wasting assets when the guy you would be bringing in will give you multiple years of good play. Yeesh. Agreed don't bring in rentals but if you have a multi-year upgrade you do it. And yes he is an upgrade. And really Nonis believed he wanted an upgrade as well or the talks wouldn't have been happening at all. Don't put much stock in his "veteran support" stuff. Does anyone expect him to say "I don't trust my goaltending so I'm working hard to replace them". That'll go over really well with the guys who remain his goaltenders after not making a move.
