I think you give the former front office too much credit. We had Diaz, Weber, Campoli on our roster already when they traded for Kaberle, lol. Apparently they weren't overly concerned with defenders being able to defend.

Spacek was a better fit with our roster makeup at the time, experienced, could play semi tough matchups ect to alleviate some of the growing pains of a rookie D, but then Gauthier in his infinite wisdom decided another D who can't play D was exactly what the DR ordered. Unreal, thank god he is gone, seriously, beyond stupid, going into a season like that where you plan to be competitive was completely irresponsible in my view.
