If that's the case, then why did we sign so many defensemen? Why didn't we just count on Cameron Gaunce, Joel Chouinard and Matt Hunwick to carry the load?

They weren't willing to take chances on D, yet they were willing to take a chance that a guy who missed all of last season with PCS and has a history of concussion problems and a kid fresh out of junior who got concussed last season with a major offensive role? If so, that's just plain silly. Management made it clear they were through having the Avs pushed around and manhandled in the defensive zone, but apparently they don't care if that's the case on offense.

And they still suck as depth signings.

Oh and to answer your question, YES I'd rather have Mauldin here. Maybe not Stoa, but yes, Mauldin has at least proven to be a depth player who can do spot duty in a larger role.
