While Murray Hiebert stressed he believed that true contenders need to build through the draft and not through trades. ( I took this a great news and perhaps another shot at the previous regime)
I heard that comment and found it very interesting as well. Could be why Deboer's teams had more success, and Spott's always looked like a bunch of individuals skating around out there.

Very much looking forward to seeing this Troy Smith team - I think we're going to like it a lot.
