I understand what Holland is doing. That doesnt mean sit and wait five years for these kids to start really contributing. He was more talking about the younger guys on Defense at the NHL level. You wouldnt move those guys. Prospects and picks he'd move. He proved it last year. Bouwmeester is 29. He's a top pairing guy. The Wings have the organizational depth to make the move and not even blink with the amount of NHL caliber prospects they have.
