Besides, imagine how bad our defense would look right now if he had let Ericsson walk and taken a 1yr flyer on Hannan. We'd be royally screwed considering all his UFA top targets on D signed elsewhere.
Agreed. Everyone knew Stuart was leaving this offseason so the Ericsson signing was even more necessary. Going with kids and journeymen for the #6 and #7 spot is great, but when you're creeping up into the #4 and #5 you want more stability.
