For some additional salt and vinegar in our wounds, however, consider if Holmgren signed O'Donnell and one of Nabakov/Turco/Mason, put his feet up and called it a FA period. I would have been thrilled.
I tend to agree with you but he decided to add a really good defenseman instead of a goalie for now. Meszaros could likely replace either Carle or Coburn - more likely Carle since Coburn was just re-signed. I expect that a trade will be made for Carle at some point before the season begins. Either that or somebody takes him for picks and we sign Turco.
