When we have a great depth, they play less and then also the age factor disappears.

Either of them won't replace Hudler. It's more of Gustav Nyquist who will do that.
Neither of them are needed.

Having both of them is a prime example of Holland holding back youth to keep over-the-hill, middle-of-the-road players.

If we lose Mursak because of Samuelsson, we've made a big mistake.

I'm dismayed by Holland's recent performance.

Mursak should have been given a shot two years ago. Tatar and Nyquist should have been rookies this year. Kindl should have gotten the shot instead of Salei a couple years ago. Smith should have been a rookie last year.,

Think about the CRASH of rookies we're going to have next year if there is no season.

Tatar. Nyquist. Smith. Brunner. Jarnkrok. Andersson. Lashoff and Mursak, if he's not waived.

Here's who we might lose:
Flip (doubt it.) Cleary (probably) Miller (possibly), Kindl (maybe), White (maybe)

Defense, we're OK. We should have done more to establish Kindl because, IMO, he has the tools. Smith should have had his rookie season last year so we didn't have to waste $4M a year on Quincey.
