If you ask me, reality has finally struck Kenny upside the head. Just a few weeks ago his stance was "Cola, Sammy, and Helm will be our deadline acquisitions" and then just today he comes out saying "depth isn't going to help us - we need top 6 forwards and top 4 defensemen."

I honestly think Holland refused to trade his 1st round pick because he's scared ****less it'll end up being the best pick we've had in years - even better than last years. And he didn't want to make the same mistake twice with a team that is even worse off than it was last year.
The Blues fleeced Colorado in trading Erik Johnson for Kevin Shattenkirk. Colorado fleeced Ken Holland - inadvertently - in trading Kyle Quincey to Tampa which Steve Yzerman turned into a first round pick.

Sure, Jay Bouwmeester isn't worth a first round pick. Say it enough to yourself and maybe at some point you'll actually believe that bunk. Holland is scared to do his job. Why are you defending that?
