    I did mention Fast, in the second sentence you quoted.

    I'd expect that if we trade Skjei, we're also getting something back that's not draft picks, so I don't necessarily view that as a subtraction from the roster. I'm not "changing" what I'm saying, but I am projecting a bit of uncertainty.

    Yes, I do expect this team will be too good to miss the playoffs next season. But if I'm wrong, and they do miss the playoffs next season because the kids I'm relying on aren't ready, there's no harm in that. They will make the playoffs SOON.... the year after, then. I don't understand why that is confusing.

    What's confusing is you're already penciling in Kravtsov, some unknown rookie, and something back that's not a draft pick to replace the team's #1 LD. And you think they're going to be "too good to miss the playoffs!" But if they're not, hey, no biggie, the following year.

    We could have drafted him if we didn’t get Trouba

    Agreed. Look I’m probably Kravstov’s biggest fan. I remember at the draft people crying about passing on Wahlstrom when I loved that we passed on him. However penciling him to take over such a important spot in the lineup before ever getting his feet wet in the nhl is shortsighted. He will need at least a year to get acclimated like Kakko

    It does seem a touch aggressive, doesn't it?

    Yup. They can’t have it both ways. Can’t say that we should sell off because we aren’t close(even though we are) then say we can just plus young kids into the lineup and win. Doesn’t work like that
