Ten days after losing the Cup, they'd already decided that upgrading the D and moving Gagne was their plan, which means they'd been thinking about it for quite a while.
Getting Meszaros when Hamhuis didn't pan out had nothing to do with being 'forced' to move Gagne - that decision was taken a couple weeks earlier.
Do you know this as fact or is it your opinion?
I find it hard to believe this is fact but I can't tell by the way you wrote it.
