Kesler was out last year and we managed to do just fine with a rookie taking his spot temporarily.
Salo has been replaced just fine, wait 20 games for Garrison to get comfortable, people forget Hammer took 20 games to get adjusted and playing to his capabilities too.
The right deal hasn't come along, had we already shipped Lu off for whatever has been offered thus-far we would look alot worse than we do now.
Salo is an all around pro-with high end d and offense combined.Garrison is not a replacement.Never will be.Not his game.
We did not do fine without Kes.First round exit and seven players traded hands for Hodgson.
Luo is not supposed to be here and he is the bright spot on this team with Kass right now.
