I've never thought of KH as a "herp derp" kind of guy, but if he was, it might be more of a "herp derp, must sign veterans to 2 year deals and toss in NTC's"- Sammy and Bert. And IMO it's safe to say that Bert and Sammy are in the way of both Tatar and Nyquist this year, and could be blocking guys again next year. Just sayin.
Everything, when it comes to Holland apologists, is about "wait until next year"

Wait until next year when we make our big trade.
Wait until next year's unrestricted free agent class
Wait until next year when we introduce the rookies.

I'm glad to make the playoffs.
But honestly, I'd rather finish 10th with youth than 7th and out in the first round with 36 year olds.

And quite honestly, we might be 10th with Sammy and Bert anyhow
