The Hawks were sure they had Khabibulin for years ... the Nuks thought the same with Luongo .... the Isles locked up Dipietro for a lifetime ... all slipped in their play. It is better to have a pipeline constantly developing a potential starter and eventually have to trade that player away or have him serve as a backup than it is to start the trend of moving players far too soon in their development and never have that piece if needed. Looking towards the future, Hellberg's presence allowed us to move Lindback. Who is in the pipeline that allows us to move Magnus? Definitely not Chet Pickard. Our latest signing hasn't played a game in NA yet.
