It is sad that here they are again, rebuilding.
If Holmgren had gotten young offensive minded defensemen when
he traded Richards and Carter, we would be further along in rebuilding this group.
Holmgren put too much emphasis on replacing the forwards and too much reliance on FA retreads on the backend.
When the trades occurred, rebuilding the defense should have been a priority.
He built it backwards, they should have gotten offensive defensemen and signed FA forwards.
And they should have picked Hamilton, not Couturier, we need a stud defenseman that badly.
