Public GM comments to keep the fans interested. Nothing more. They want to get better. Ok. What is better? Who are they going to get that is better than (pick your expensive vet) that is also cheaper? No one of course. The goal is to be a better team. That means you make moves, as in plural. maybe a Dman for a F or a F for a Dman. These things happen all of the time. Once they make their moves, whatever they end up being, most of us will be surprised at the moves-like we always are......
Well they could simply bring back Sobotka (cheaper and better) and deal Berglund for a pick or even waive him.
They're not trading their captain and leader. No chance.
Much like Chicago isn't dealing Seabrook just because their feeling the pinch.
