The only real disaster was Gerber. Sure, Redden had his ups and down and ran into some injuries that season but he still was #1 Sens d-men. As soon as Emery was in the end things changed.
Phillips/Volchenkov were the #1 dmen. Redden was a 3/4 guy and wasn't very good. Just because on paper hes on a top of a depth chart means nothing. Redden has been not very good ever since his mom died, I dont know if theres a correlation or not, but thats when his play started to deteriorate.
Our D is different, I dont really give a **** about comparing the two D's because 07 has been over and done with for awhile. One thing I will say is IMO, our goaltending now has been significantly upgraded, which I think is something that should not be overlooked.
Anyway I was trying to bite my tongue since this is about Jason Smith, im weak willed I guess.
