Could someone explain to me why we had to make two trades with San Jose to obtain a draft pick in one and a defen seman in the other? Why didn't we just make one trade that sent White and future considerations to San Jose for the defenseman and a draft pick? Anyone got any ideas? Just curious.
While here I might just as well get my two cents in on the state of affairs as I see it. I believe we have the players to get into the playoffs. I believe if Pitkanen play up to his full potential we have pretty good defensemen. Improvement on defense to me will come if Mo will let the forwards take it to the opponents and keep the puck in the attack zone more. We need to cut down the number of shots allowed. You do this through attacking (controlling the puck), hitting, and using our speed. What are your thoughts?
