How do we blow things up? If we blow things up, we still have a decent team with guys like Stepan, Staal, Hank, McD, Moore, and the rest of the young players. Or are we trading Hank, too? Are we trading Stepan? McD?

You say we should blow this up but then don't say how you would. Nothing worse in the world than throwing out suggestions like that and leaving it open ended on how it would be accomplished. Utterly lazy.
