Pronger's injuries would not be such a big deal if others could step up and perform at a very hi level in his absence. But they cant.

A 3 mil or even 4.5 mil Dman cant fill Pronger's shoes while he is off on his injuries. Nor can they replace the elderly Timo whne he retires.

SO no, a 3 or 4 mil Dman is no good. Need two Dmen each making 5-7 mil. One to fillin for Prongs and another to replace Timo, which will be requred soon.
