Moving the goalposts, are we? They didn't re-sign Martin because he didn't to re-sign with them. And, Volchenkov was considered one of the top UFA D-men available last summer. Signing did not prevent the Debbies from having the money from addressing their defense. The question of whether they made the appropriate choices is a different and unrelated issue.
