Right now we have one first pairing Dman, two second pairing Dmen, and about 4 third pairing Dmen. We were lucky Pietro stayed healthy last season, but there's no guarantee that the same thing will happen again. This would be a great offseason to fix that for the future.
If he had a history of injuries, then I could understand, but this is incredibly pessimistic.

Any team would be majorly affected if they lost someone like Pietrangelo.
