-we need to grab support guys like Dupuis, etc

These are things I've been clamoring for a while here - getting criticized harshly for it as well.

You don't need 6 superstars comprising your top-6. You need 3-4 and then good supports.

That bottom-6 isn't going to fix itself through development of young players- there are a plethora of UFA vets available that can play an NHL game.

And for the love of god - please trade Eberle for one of Carlson/Mcdonagh - the difference it will make to this team when Nick Schultz/Whitney/J.Schultz aren't getting top-4 minutes is exponential.
There is no chance in hell Eberle is getting traded. Definition of a panic, short sighted move.
