We need to trade for more offense

STOP SAYING THIS! It's the worst thing I've heard this year. That a few posters are saying it here and there, that's fine, but now there's media saying it? JESUS CHRIST!

Our roster is STACKED. It's full of youth and experience and talent. It doesn't need tweeking, or an overhaul, or shoring up, it needs ... I don't know what it needs, but it's not new faces. It needs to be left alone.

We need more offense as much as we need a new arena to play in.

We have ****LOADS of offensive ability. None of it is producing right now for some reason, but it'll come back. It's a mathematical certainty. For the love of god, STOP suggesting we try to get another scorer. We have so many of them.

I think we just need something to kick start this offense. Briere, Carter, Richards, Giroux, Hartnell, JVR, Gagne and others can all score goals, they just aren't.

The worst thing we could do right now is make a trade for the sake of making a trade.

...well, we need more offense, and while we are stacked, they are not producing, a trade might shake things up enough to get things going...so trading for offense isnt far from the (possible) truth...

Well this amazing offense better do something fast then, cause as much as I like to lose 2-0, 3-0, 4-1, etc etc, thats not going to get us into playoffs. Can I wait it out? Sure... but going into playoffs you need every win possible, and right now we are 28th in the league so hopefully we can start winning games again.

unless they turn it around quick they need to add and subtract. I could see a trade of one of our more productive players going for a less productive player if Holmgren thinks it'll push the team in the right direction, so adding production based on net points certainly isn't necessary
