Jesus, some of you are thick.

I'm not complaining that we gave up draft picks; I'm stating that we can't continue to do so.

We've made our gambit. Now it's time to restock the cabinet as best as possible or we're going to be hurting from the moves Holmgren made to put us where we are. I totally understand what he was trying to do, and the results on the ice are positive. But he has had to waste more picks than necessary, and that's not ideal...if we don't start to change the fact that we have no prospects, it will become an issue sooner than many of you realize.

Not having prospects right now = trouble in 2-3 years (when we will need those players to be in the system). I get why he sold out our picks, but now it's time to start going in the other direction. It's a precarious situation.
