The only reason i can come up with for Slats & co taking all these Euro's in deals is the same thing we always hear - fast, elusive skaters. I think it's great to stockpile these kind of players, but we will need to balance that out.

I'd say the draft would be time to aquire the guys who will be fearless along the boards and on the backcheck, but i KNOW Sather is gunning for Ovechkin. I don't think there's any doubt. The stockpiling of picks, JD's comments about building around a Kovalchuk type, and the fact that Ovechkin meets one of our most needed areas - a LW with size.

If we end up with Ovechkin, or if we keep the picks I can't see either as being a bad thing.
