it's simple:

lost the minute-eating hamrlik
lost the point producing wiz

weber has disapointed and taken a step back imo.
yemelin proved that he won't be completely at ease and his old self for a while
woytwika can't cut it.
diaz is better than expected, but not good enough.
and nobody else from hamiton proved they could hold a spot. maybe nash, but he got injured so he'll probably get a chance during the season

that's why we got campoli.

if youre management, you look internally first to fill those holes. if you can honestly expect weber to continue his progression and be able to hold a spot at least on the third pairing, you don't go sign a UFA dman because then you'll have an extra player who'll do nothing but sit in the press box eating cap space and a precious contract.
- weber was supposed to take a step up and produce points from the back end and be at least as defensively responsible as wiz - which isn't hard to do.
- yemelin was suppose to eat some minutes, be physical and defensively responsible.
- and markov will be back shortly

none of those things have happened. so we get help in campoli.

markov comes back and solves both the hamrlik and wiz problem in one shot.

that's what preseason and the camp is for, evaluate the young players. they did and found that signing another dman would be good. so they did. it's called depth and it's a good thing
