A Tinordi could theoretically play with a PK for example.

Emelin with Josh or Markov.
The thing about building towards a Cup timing is crucial particularly in this salary cap era.
The window of opportunity can shut very quickly just ask Vancouver. It took them three kicks at the can just to make the finals only to fall 1 game short, they also fell off the radar immediately thereafter.
I like Josh but let's just say the Oilers determined he was a piece they needed and offered one of their young studs in a package deal. You couldn't dismiss that out of hand despite his leadership qualities.
You may find to upgrade in one area you have to downgrade in another with the intent on having both areas become an upgrade in the not too distant future.
Agreed. But just saying that there is no point to rush them
This is why Bergevin go Murray, Weaver and extended Bouillon.
Tinordi, Pateryn and Beaulieu are not regressing in Hamilton...
