They can cry all they want, but it doesn't look like management will do d*** to provide it.

To be fair, what could they really do?

Fringe prospects like McIntryre will get you a guy like Sutherby maybe but not a NHL defenseman.

What would you want them to trade?

Ott? Lundqvist? Sawada? Draft Picks?

I'm still surprised they didn't at least take a flyer on some of the defenseman that has been waived. That would have been free at least.

Plus, big name guys that could impact the team aren't available yet. Even Florida has a chance to make the playoffs this year. The best we can hope for is Fistric to get healthy and start playing like he belongs in the NHL.
