It will look like a comment made in hindsight, but it really isn't. I felt this way going into the season that the D was truly in deep deep ****, the injuries only made it worse, but we were never in a position to combat injuries on the back end, we barely had a top 6 to begin with.
I'm sure the front office knew there was a risk, but the UFA market wasn't exactly overflowing with guys taht could play top 4 minutes and not cost a huge contract. The fact that Wisniewski got 33 mil shows how little there was available.
