Shows how fast expectations can drop if one little piece is lost and everything keeps faling apart.
What was once considered "one of the best defenses in the league" by parts of the fanbase (not me) is now just a bunch of scrubs.

Realistically, this D was Pronger and Timonen plus some glue guys to skate with them.
Coburn and Mesz are reclamation projects, Carle is pretty much a specialist who is lacking basic skills, and the rest are borderline NHLers.
