Grossman has concussion issues and is a defensive defenseman only.
This group is not skilled enough to run this fast break offense that LAVI wants to run.

So we have three options
1) get a good PMD so we can run the offense correctly
2) fire LAVI and institute a trap based defense
3) ignore the insanity and continue like nothing is wrong
and try for another top 10 pick.

I would have kept Carle and traded Coburn.
Coburn is just another defensive defenseman like all the rest we draft.
We know already.

And no to keeping Carle. Matt Carle blows dick and Tampa fans are already mad that they're paying him 5 million. Plus we had Coburn before we traded for Schenn. So at the time we only had 2 defensive defensemen.

To everybody else; I'm pretty sure the roster up front if getting bigger. Bigger forwards and all that.
