What I'm saying is that we need another D-Man, a good one.
Bingo, just not sure where he comes from. Also not sure why Holland's offer to Suter was only for $6.9M/year. Sure, maybe Suter had his heart set on playing with Parise or closer to home, but why not be more aggressive (i.e. over $7.5M) to press the issue? He had a huge need and a lot of money to spend. That offer, to me, shows where Holland's mind is at--and it points to us not getting another elite D-man unless Kronwall or Smith somehow emerge as one.
