There would be 3 options: overpay for a dman via trade or free agency (no thanks), rush one of our prospects into the show (no thank you to that either) or go with what we got and just ride it out until our prospects are ready (if they even pan out). None of those options are very attractive.
Was that during the first few months where he was very 'un-Kimmo' like?

As I get why he would then, he is obviously a proud guy, and I think he was getting frustrated with being not his usual self.

But even before the Olympics he had been playing some pretty great hockey. I think ~the start of December he has looked ~himself.

I mean, I know last year was a shortened year, but PPG wise adjusted he had one of his most productive years ever. 6th in D scoring last year!
