And really it was no gamble by Holmgren. We traded Ratchuk for Legein, and Ratchuk sucks.
Testwuide was ranked in the top ten college UFAs last year and it cost us nothing to sign except the contract itself. Great moves really even if the players dont pan out. Add Pither who was the 3rd leading scorer in the OHL last year after Hall and Seguin, and I think Holmgren did a fine job of maximizing our assets without a first round pick
This is part of the problem or replenishing the system, no picks and you have to resort to other ways to gets guys in to fill the needs of the organization to meet the needs on the ice. It looks like Homer found a diamond in the rough in Bobrovsky, but this team has a huge hole on the wings going forward in the top 9 never mind the top 6.
