I agree that there are flaws with how the D is constructed. I agree 100% with that and that's homer's problem.

However, given the situation the team was in last offseason, there wasn't a way to retain those points in terms of scoring and still keep this team viable long term.

Everyone needs to realize that this team at this point relies heavily on young players up front and to score. That is going to be a process that isn't going to look pretty all of the time from day one.

We either can struggle through the growing pains and look to fix the structure of the D for long term viability along the way, or we could have re-signed a guy like Carle for that contract, or made our spend on forwards higher with veteran players. I think Holmgren moved in the right direction in terms of smart contracts and trying to get quality young pieces on D.
