<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>swinny</b></div><div>I see your point completely, but......

I look at this aging core, and then ask, is it time to take a step back and retool a little then? Table Kreji as a rental? Do you move Marchand? Or, do you sign a Vatanen to a 1 year deal and take one last kick at the can?

See this team very much at a cross roads now. And it seems Sweeney is sitting in the fence.</div></div>

I think the point is very clear from Sweeney is they want to continue a smooth direction with this team. They don't want to panic and acquire a RHD Vatanen just to give a last little push (in reality Vatanen isn't exactly a fantastic player). They have confidence in these young players and we just gotta take their word for now. There's gonna be mistakes. They will mess up, it's just gonna happen and we need to expect that. Considering their limited experience, they need to adjust to the NHL. BUT the staff riding these young dmen tells me that they fully believe that one or two of these guys will be capable of filling the void.

I see why fans want a little last push. Because in reality, this is probably the last season where they're labeled as contenders. This team doesn't make last pushes in the offseason. They make pushes at the deadline. Rick Nash, Charlie Coyle, Marcus Johansson, Ondrej Kase. It is very evident that they want to evaluate their roster from what they have and at the deadline, you address any need you need to make. Obviously right now, top 4 LHD is the wildcard. If no one can fill that void, then you make a move. That's the push
