if i was a g.m. in todays n.h.l. i would have to utilize the draft to it,s fullest and that means stockpiling draft picks. not a big fan of peter  chiarelie but i must say he seems to be the only g.m. in the league that has finally "got it" chuck kobasew was a spare part and woefully out of shape. saving of salary and getting a second rd. pick and maybe a alex fallstrom not that bad a deal next out the door..... andrew ference
