That doesn't seem like great value does it?

I'm going to hold my overreaction until the pick is determined

Been telling you for months they’ve been desperate for someone to take Holtz off of their hands for anything with a pulse.

His numbers look like trash.. would’ve rather kept holtz if my eyes are working properly

The professionals aren’t fooled by misleading goal totals.

Cotter?   

When I used to watch Vegas more regularly, he was fine, like the times when we didn’t notice wood. Did his job, hit people and got a point or two here and there

Cotter looks like a lower line snarl guy. He was in the top 20 in hits last year. You need those guys in the playoffs (and this team needs them anytime) but damn Schmid and Holtz seems steep. 

And no one is softer than the guy he’s replacing.

Big guy, physical. Can bounce between the bottom six and second line.

I honestly cant remember ever even hearing his name before.  Then again, I watched much less of the rest of the league this past season.   

He won the Cup with Vegas. He’s not nothing. He’s the type of player we need.

Said this in another thread but to this point in their careers, Holtz’s and Cotter’s offensive numbers aren’t wildly different.  This is a case of Fitz believing that Holtz won’t put it together as a Top 6 forward, so might as well get a solid young Bottom 6 “snarl” guy for him.  Cotter is also signed for another year beyond this one for pennies.  Fitz is basically betting that Holtz isn’t going to be any good, and that Cotter will do the job he’s being brought aboard to do.

Think Grant Marshall.

Okay thanks.   Watched the Vegas finals so not sure why I don’t remember him at all.  
 

Sad to see Schmid go after what he did for us against the Rangers.   I still had a lot of hope for him once Markstrom and Allen moved on.
