I have no problem with any GM making moves to improve his team, but building a winner is by drafting well and developing your young players, not trading them for quick, short term solutions. The media and their whole "trade deadline" mentality where a "name" is added so they win the deal isn't how you build a winner. Usually deals are fine for "finishing" a team like Boston with Kelly/Peverly but not to build a core.

Again, unless Emelin won't be extended, I don't see the point of trading for a big name "stay at home d-man" when we have those players here(Emelin Gorges) and on the way(Tinordi Pateryn Ellis etc). If we can get a Murray Fistric or whoever cheap on a 1 year deal, I'm all for it, it doesn't hurt the future nor use ridiculous cap space.
