The best way to procure outstanding defensive talent (or any talent) is via the draft. However, being patient with young defensemen can be the hardest part--suffering through the growing pains is almost impossible and has caused many NHL teams to send away future stars of the game.

Shawn Horcoff. Keith Ballard. Matt Stajan. Mike Komisarek. The list is a lot longer than that, but it sometimes feels like every team in the league has a player or two whose contracts they’d love to make disappear.
That’s why some sort of amnesty buyout could be an appealing option when the NHL and NHLPA eventually get together and work out the next collective bargaining agreement.

I'm not sure why management at TEAM 1260 hasn't seen fit to give me my own radio show yet, but until they correct that oversight, I'm happy to ride shotgun twice a week as a co-host with Jason Gregor and thankful for fill-in gigs like the one I'll have Saturday on Nation Radio.
