English term or phrase: draw the sting
How should I understand this :

The acuteness of Kirch’s problems does at least draw the sting of the nasty put options it faces.

The Put options = the sting (the pain in...) that Kirch's group is facing ?

Explanation:
Yes.

The metaphor is one of being stung by a bee. The acuteness of the problems leads you to find what is causing the pain and remove it.

The put options are equated to the pain of the sting.

je me demandais tout de même si ça ne voulait pas carrément dire que cela "ôte une épine du pied", "extrait le venin" ?
