Going into this season the defensive depth chart was roughly Green, Alzner, Carlson, Hamrlik, Poti, Schultz, Orlov, Erskine, and Kundratek.

How much depth on defense should a team have? And are you under the impression that the rest of the league all has 9 guy depth charts all of whom are capable of playing 20 NHL minutes no problem?

So I 100% agree the defense needs to be upgrade but I also feel under yesterday's particular circumstances most of the league would also struggle.
If you commit to Mike Green as your #1 dman you better have damn good depth.
