Yes, having 4 defensemen (three of whom are LDs) is not depth. Depth is not the first pairing/line, depth is what you see down the lineup. Having Stralman on the second pairing, Pyatt on the second line and guys like Rupp and Kolarik on the third line is a huge lack of depth.
Additionally, we'd most certainly suffer some injuries, as all teams do. We'd have games when our second pair is Eminger-Stralman, and our second line is Rupp-Stepan-Pyatt.
This is the least deep team in many years, certainly since the rebuilding had begun. And it doesn't help the fact that Hartford is empty. Who are we calling up from there? Gilroy? Newbury? That's bad enough, but what about after that when a really bad injury stretch hits?
