This, 10 times this. We can't hold to our former team leaders, can hardly lure border NHL Latvians, and some actually think that we might land a big name?

Yes, we need a goalie. Yes, we need a shutdown d-man. And a real PP quarterback. And a second top 6 center would be great. But the team is running on a shoestring, so don't expect any additions except Daugava (and maybe someone of Trotter's caliber).
