Sydor and Marchant sure as hell won't shore up that porous D. They might upgrade the offense (does no one realize they lost Whitney here, Marchant won't be able to replace those numbers. Whitney has 5 seasons of superior numbers to Marchants career year) a touch but their D is something Sydor can't fix.

"More talent"--debatable.

"Acquisition of 2 players"--4 players were acquired (Brathwaite, Sydor, Marchant, and Letowski), not to mention dead weight like Allison (garbage that Nashville picked up), Van Impe, Sillinger, and Davidson was shed.

"Richardson and Lachance did nothing"--I beg to differ--we found veteran leadership and a new captain in Richardson.

"Sydor and Marchant won't shore up porous D"--You know

"Marchant won't replace Whitney's numbers"--he's not being asked to.
