While I agree that drafting a d-man is the way to go, is everyone fine with waiting for 5 years for that player to make an impact? Meanwhile, all of our young players are on larger contracts(Giroux, Couts, Schenn) and Voracek is a UFA.
The whole point of drafting BPA is to later make trades for need. Guess what, w have a major need. BUT, we also have EXTRA of what other teams are looking for. And that is centers.
The team(GM and Snider) need to pick which way to go and STAY with it. If they are going to try and win in 4-5 years, then make trades TODAY to try and make that happen. Go to Hartnell and tell him the new plan. See if he will waive to help the team in the future. Trade Talbot. Don't re-sign Gagne. Tell Kimmo and ask the top 5 teams he would like to go to. Trade Grossmann, Coburn and Mez for younger D-men or picks. Replace them with UFA's that don't kill the cap. Buyout Bryz. Get a coach that plays to the players STRENGTHS. HOLD EVERYONE ACCOUNTABLE. Make a plan AND STICK TO IT.
