That said, I 100% agree with you. Holmgren screwed up in 2011 when he got younger at forward, but kept over the hill players in key roles to win now. His biggest blunder was not getting younger on defense which was and still remains the team's immediate need. His focus was entirely wrong. It was a huge gamble to rely on two defenders in their late 30s when the majority of players are out of the league by that age.
Would you have tried to get someone like Jack Johnson from LA instead of Simmonds or Schenn? Would you have tried to get someone like John Moore or Cody Goloubef from the Jackets instead of Voracek or one of those picks?
