Money posts. Defensemen should be the absolute highest priority on MacT's agenda, even to the point where these goalie trades were simply something to get done while he waits for other GMs to get into trade deadline mode.

I think MacT knows there's a big fish waiting to be hooked if a certain team isn't in playoff position by the trade deadline.
