I got patience but we got Holmgren who has no desire to pick a defensemen #1.
They had a perfect opportunity to draft defensmen with the Carter #1 pick.
But they would rather draft Centers and trade for Defensemen.
So I give up on developing a blue chip defenseman since, we will not pick one.

Signing (Streit or Hainsey) is a typical Flyer move -- sign someone 1-2 year
from retirement for too much money and little production.
I do not see that working at all, waste of cap space IMHO.
Not close enough to competing for cup to waste cap space on rentals.

Why save all these young centers we are not going to win without rebuilding this defense.
Something which it seems like we might not be willing to do at this point.

Its not like we are going to win a cup anytime soon with this collection of defensemen that we have now.
