At the same time trade deadline day is usually pretty stupid with GM asking high prices for scrubs. If MG wants to do something he needs to be working the phone now and not on trade deadline day.
I have accepted that in the new NHL and with parity trade deadline day is no longer exciting or does much to improve a team unless you give up a lot. Trade deadline day is more about TSN/SportsNet selling commercials.
Edit - I want to say that the reason I don't think MG can do anything on TDD is that the asking price is too high and he needs to make changes now (if he can). This is no attack on him as I said earlier he has 1 more season to do what is needed. I did believe he should of went after a C in the off season regardless of Kesler coming back or not or when since Kesler has a history of being injured and insurance was needed.
Well, according to some media reports he has been in touch with the other 29 GM's at least once each, in some cases more, trying to get a centre. I'd say he is trying but there is very little movement right now and the asking price is too high. He may be willing to pay the price as time moves on but right now I'd think it would be safe to assume he is trying.
