Not saying it's a bad formula, i liked our D at the begining of the season, but just trying to understand why it is so banged up.
Mostly because they were not supposed to play nearly as much as they do. Gill was playing 23-25 min a game, he should've been around 18. Spacek, Hamrlik should've been lower too, etc. I mean, Markov and Gorges are 2 of our defensemen that could take the most minutes (Markov was taking a LOT), so it's no wonder they will get injured. They're just too old for the amount of ice they're seeing, and this will inevitably lead to either exhaustion or injuries...
