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.
I would have said Mursak and Kindl are examples of how Holland was right and they were not ready. Kindl is still a 6th dman. Mursak will never be ready. Them playing would have done nothing but crush them.
