Heh, I wasn't going to do that. Your offer was more generous than some of the offers I have seen.
The point in the end is that we will have to give up something to get something. With as deep as the draft is going to be, is it worth it this year? We aren't going to be contenders even if we got a top line forward and defenseman.
I think it is important that we don't swing too hard towards youth. Look at Edmonton for example. We need some guys in their prime mixed in with the youth. I also think that it is possible to have too many prospects in the cupboard where not all will be given the chance to succeed. If Kindl had competition this year he probably wouldn't be one of our top guys right now. Eriksson is 27/28 and fits nicely in with the current core and will still be around when the youth hits. I don't mind losing a few picks here and there considering what we already have.
