I'm happy with our team until the deadline, then I think we should land the best available fit and plow into the second half at the top of the division.

Hopefully not. Why would they be interested in another winger who never lives up to his billing?

you don't build a consistent contender by throwing away draft picks every year at the deadline...

Parrish was butt city last year...not a chance in hell, not even if he paid us the league minimum...he is the definition of average, he has no niche, no special talent, I already know what he can do and it's not good enough to make our team...

Is he the worst player ever to score 16 goals in a season?

Parrish is like Murray to me...If they would acccept "cheap" 1 year deals, then I would consider both of them...They are both power play specialists with soft hands (parrish especially).

and you don't find useful talent drafting 25th or lower every year.

a good spot to be in though.

i think zetterberg was drafted in the 7th round at like 201 overall... so drafting 25 or lower in first round isnt exactly a tough task.

I think its tough, but there is also plenty of talent to be had. St. Louis want undrafted. I think Luc Robitaille was insanely late i the draft.

Because of how incredibly slow Luc Robitaille was, that was hardly a surprise...slowest 600 goal scorer ever, no question...

Here's the thing, if you have great scouting, you can lose your first round pick every year and still have the best draft class out there...

Look at the Red Wings, they trade away their first picks somewhat regularly...they find Zetterberg and Datsyuk way down there, obvious first round talents...they know it, but no one else does...they know they were the only team to see these guys, they know they are probably first round talents, but why waste a 1st or 2nd round pick on guys that you know will be there much later?

Detroit knew what they had in Z and Dats...they were also the team that found Alexander Edler...Vancouver got wind of the Red Wings scouting of Edler (as the story goes, Vancouver's scouts never once saw Edler play, but were so captivated by Detroit scouting him twice, that they decided to draft him themselves) and Vancouver spends a third round pick on him over Detroit...

You can get first round talent anywhere...you just have know where to look and how to develop and you can routinely have the best draft class pretty much regardless of where you pick...

Easier said than done? Yes. Impossible? No.

Agreed, for one of the rare times in recent memory the defense looks to be a definite strength.
