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.
It's the way he wanted to go, take a chance on marginals and hope for a gem. The other issue is while we loaded up on all these marginal players there is nothing stopping us from burying Grebs, Larsson, Belov, Joesnuu?
If they aren't good enough they don't neccasarily have to make the team.
