Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. But that's how you have to do it, in my opinion.
Unless you think last year was a complete fluke we are two pieces away. A top 6/9 player with size and a D that can clear the crease. If we wait to find those guys via the draft then we will also need another top-pairing D when Markov is gone, and another couple top-6 wingers at least one of whom has size to replace Bourque and Gionta. Then you have to figure at least one of Emelin or Diaz if not both will head to free agency next year so we will need replacements for them as well. I know we have great drafting but we are talking 5-6 quality NHLers and one Elite one. That's asking a lot.
