There was no logic to why we dropped this far
(retrospective logic doesn't count) just like there was no logic to why teams like the Sens or Florida jumped so high.
Wisniewski -> Emelin
Hamrlik -> Diaz
Regardless of what they look like right now, we dropped 2 big-minute players for 2 rookies. Markov was supposed to replace one of them, but he didn't play.
Pretty simple really. Gionta wasn't as good, Plekanec had a tough year, Cammalleri struggled...boom, no offensive depth. That can't really be prepared for in the offseason though.
