Is this a 2012-2013 playoff contenders defense group?
I believe it has the potential to be, but I've been wrong before lol
No, this D is for the most part Horrible.
The only D that should be here next year on that list are Markov, Subban, Gorges, Emelin and unfortunately Kaberle as Kaberle's contract cannot be traded or dumped.
St-Denis back to Hamilton, Weber and Diaz traded for whatever we can get for them (or sent down to Hamilton) and Campoli not re-signed.
The D was the downfall of this team and to keep the same players is just asking for a repeat of this year. Too soft, too passive. We need bigger and tougher D to beat the teams with the big strong forwards.
Hopefully our new management recognizes this reality of the NHL in 2012.
