Having nothing to show for an asset considering all the other assets that were involved (minus Eminger) is why we keep having farm problems..not the entire reason but part of it ..at least in this instance.
I think you're being unrealistic. We were a contender last year, and you don't trade one of your top defenders on a Cup run just so you don't lose him via Free Agency. Also, you don't re-sign Carle to that insane contract when you're already paying other players to be 2/3 tweeners on your defense.
Much greater players have gotten to Free Agency than Matt Carle. Homer tried to improve the defense rather than accept mediocrity at ludicrous prices.
