Defense Spending

Ok so the hamster on the wheel has been churnin and came up with following theory:

If we can’t flip a samuelsson or dumoulin for anyone of use to help fill our glaring needs on a 1st place team then GMRS will seriously need to re-evaluate his drafting philosophies! I understand in theory that puck moving dmen are prized commodities but someone in the room needs to pound the table for an occasional forward.(really hope O’Reilly’s name came up in ought 9 when they drafted despres)

Everyone loves depth but if you can’t flip anyone without including 1st-3rd round picks then at some point diminishing returns become a factor. Furthermore you get stuck in a self full-filling prophecy cuz you can always make the case that i dont wanna trade player x, y or z just in case player a, b or c goes down. And I’m totally on board with the theory that you can flip dmen for forwards HOWEVER if you can’t quite get what you need, someone in the room needs to know whats up with the forwards.
