Weather or not it is the best decision is a little more tricky.
Sure, if one of our big defensemen sustains an injury he'll probably be in the top-4 and that will help us out.

But he's kind of a very expensive insurance policy, but still isn't actually good.

It's kind of like you went out and got some premium HMO that will pay for your ambulance ride to the hospital and maybe some pain meds, but won't actually get you the surgery you need to really be healthy.

Okay, that analogy was a little ridiculous and ambiguous, but it seemed like a good idea at the time. I think my point still stands: he's really expensive for what he is.
