I always though the worst part of the Heatley deal was failing to get Ehrhoff. Gillis stepped in and snatched him up as a salary dump.

Ehrhoff
Volchenkov
Phillips
Meszaros
Corvo

is actually a pretty nice group. Of course we would have had to bury Cheechoo.
That defense would be in the bottom 1/3 at best in today's NHL. Wouldn't have been much better 3-4 years ago either. I think you severely overrate Corvo and Meszaros. Corvo was good as a 5/6, Mez a 4/5 after his rookie campaign. They were far less useful when they were leaned on in big top 4 roles.

Especially in front of Gerber or Emery.
