Again : And we were a bad team in good part because we completely lacked reliability on defense.

That was our defense last year :

injured Markov
rookie Diaz
rookie Emelin
unspectacular Weber
slumpling Kaberle/Spacek
''I have no idea what I'm doing, but its not working'' Campoli
aging Hal Gill
call-up St-Denis

Conclusion = we completely lacked reliability last year. If you read my quoted post again you'll see I was talking about our defense, not our no7 defensemen.

Having a good or bad 7th D won't ever make the difference between a perennial contender and a draft lottery team but its part of the equation in making a defense group more solid and reliable if players are injured, which always happen.

A poor guy suddenly won't become rich if he stops eating at the restaurant all the time but its certainly a good start in being able to pay the bills. See what I mean?
