MacT probably shouldn't have been quite so greedy in stocking up with "marginals" and waited to see what was available from other teams as they made their inevitable roster shuffles before the season began.

Teams with some cap space left (like Calgary or NYI if they don't have an internal budget) could really do well in picking up some useful players here in the next few weeks.
Problem for a team like the Flames picking up utility players is that that is sort of all they have. If you are a team that has a strong core these utility players are great. But if you dont have that core they are just bleh.
