Your crusade for a defenseman, any defenseman, is really odd. It's to the point where it seems you're perfectly willing to draft a Dman in the first round "just because," or trade for one even if it makes the team worse. What's the point?

You're currently reflecting the organization's main issue: a lack of patience.
I would have more patience if the organization, would use some common sense when drafting.
Fix goalie situation first, Defense second.Then fix the front lines.
Holmgren drafts backwards- Forwards 80% of the time.
Successful organizations build the defense first, since it takes
longer to develop defenders.
Holmer's plan is a failure because defenders cost more in trade.
He will have to trade alot from the front lines to fix the defense. Stupid.

We needed a number #1 defenseman, badly.
If there was not any worth drafting, maybe they should have traded some assets
for a #1 defenseman, instead of drafting another forward.
If they had drafted a defenseman instead of Couturier, we would be years closer to a cup.

It does not make the team worse, to trade our assets for a #1 defender.
Holmgren made it worse by never drafting for a #1 defender.
This team is not close to competing for a cup, the defense is bad.
We have tried for years to stockpile offensive talent to cover the defensive weakness
its time now to fix the defense no matter what the cost.
