Every time I think about that and get sad, I remember that all of those guys eventually wound up in the 4-7 spot (except for DeVries right now?). I think it only proves that there's an abundance of mediocre-to-average dmen in the league; I don't follow any team anywhere near as closely as I do the Oilers, but I bet you see a lot of movement in those spots from all teams.

That being said, Reirden and Henry certainly had size going for them.

(IIRC, Reirden also had a wicked shot, if it would only stay on-net.)
