No team has three pairs of first pair quality Dmen. Such an ideal scenario just won't occur very often or last very long in an NHL that has 30 teams, a salary cap, and an increasingly younger age for free agent eligibility. The hungry wolves are already circling the Senators, waiting for a Dman to fall prey. Unfortunately, Habs fans will have to endure "this situation" quite awhile longer because they can't afford a Redden or Chara and their Dman prospects aren't exactly awe inspiring.

Oh, by the way, Komisarek will soon reach the point where the fans will wonder how they got along without him.
