Right now we , like many teams, are lacking the true number 1 defenseman. But we have 5 guys that are all top 4 capable and some young guys that have not reached their full potential.

Also we have a ton in cap space available and depth at forward. If we want to trade some of our depth im sure we can make for a good trading partner with a team like CBJ or Phoenix.
I'm not playing hindsight saying we didn't draft this guy ect, I'm saying banking 4 #1s in one player was bad. We have a bunch of #6 guy prospects and maybe #4 ceiling. Sbisa is above that.
Trading for versteeg was bad, ect.

We need to have a long term strategy with our farm....we might have been able to get weber if we had 4 first round picks sitting in the minors or on the roster...but we have zero depth...we can't absorb that kind of hit...bc it's been wasted.
