Maybe if your team is capable of bringing up their own Dmen and is spending a reasonable amount on D to begin with...but for a team like Philly, dropping yet another big contract into another mediocre Dman isn't a good idea. That creates a situation where lots of money goes into an "ok" product.
That in itself is a core issue, but the reality is that they're incompetent in doing so. The reality is that they're waiting for someone to out-price themselves where they're at.
