This. If anything it just exemplifies how great a first pairing it actually was.

We were terrible due to the lack of depth outside of those two defenseman. When Emelin and Diaz are your 3-4 for a chunk of the season, you're in serious serious trouble. The other glaring hole was the lack of scoring wingers on the second line.
