Not far off, haha. But a few did play relatively well - Letang (sub-par for him, but still), Niskanen, Engelland, Despres, Strait, Bortuzzo.

I understand Orpik and Martin getting more leeway and time to bounce back - they're established top 4 guys at this level, even if they were godawful in the playoffs. But Lovejoy? I mean, he's never been anything special, he's 28, his skillset's redundant, and he stunk last year. If you can't make a guy like Lovejoy accountable (and you waive a prospect who fits a team need in the process), there's not much hope for turnover on the blueline moving forward.

And that's a scary thought.
