Another Angle on Tradesby Chief-Pilot
The past couple of years have been pretty darn good if you really look at the rosters. Nachbaur has been able to take these kids and make them over achieve. Who saw Kramer getting over 20 goals? Who saw Baldwin ever becoming as valuable as he became? we have 2 euro's that play a tougher brand of hockey than a lot of North American kids. I think Tim and Don did a good thing by not messing with the chemistry of the hard working players.
I don't fault Timmy at all. There are no blue chip players on our roster to trade. What we have is over achievers that play well together. Other g.m.'s know that, so it would take multiple players and picks to get a "stud" d-man or a proven sniper. Too high of a cost in my book.
What I would like to see though is some of our 1st round picks to actually look like the 1st round picks that they were. I have a lot of hope in MacMaster from what I saw at camp last year.
I am also concerned about our toughness. We have none aside from Valcourt. I would have loved to see what Don could have done with Doty.
