Still, I cannot ignore the fact that the trades made by deadline really seem to have helped. Gaborik, a player I have always loved watching, was now gone but I had to just roll with it.

I like Brassard, I like Moore. I know pretty much nothing about Dorsett, but it sounds good.
The thing is, who we brought in fit the style more. Brassard will get in on the plays and will move his feet more, as we've seen. Moore is a good skater and is actually competent with the puck. It's nice. If he progresses as such we will be pretty happy. Also with Dorsett, he's a tough customer with benefits, so he'll end up replacing Asham or Pyatt. I still think the trade was good overall for us, because we traded someone who just couldn't cut it here anymore for players who added much needed depth, strength and fit.
