There is merit to the concern of an injury happening to our defense and then it looking laughably bad.
Look at the Sabres when they were going on their cup run, decimated by injuries and it cost them.
IIRC, Vancouver got destroyed by defenseman injuries as well on their cup run.
If one of the top 3 goes down during the playoffs, our chances plummet.
Where would we get extra depth from? There's no depth to be had in the system, even McIlrath (if he was ready for the NHL sometime near the end of the reg season) can't be expected to fill anything more than a 6th D role. If we had Sauer healthy, I'd feel infinitely more comfortable trading away MDZ.
