It reads more as kvetching because they wanted the team to use 4 of their first 5 picks on defenseman instead of 3.

Pre-draft last year the defensive cupboard was just Spurgeon, Scandella and injured Cuma, but now Brodin, Dumba, Seeler, Kampfer, Gunnarsson and Draeger have been added and Cuma's managed to make it through a full season relatively healthy.

Not exactly bursting at the seams, but there's been obvious effort put forth into addressing the issue. People don't have to like the Bussieres pick, but needs on the blue line aren't nearly as pressing as they once were.
