I disagree. Obviously if you have players on two different pairings at -20 you are screwed, but if you pair Vis and Streit each with a solid stay at home dman you would have a solid top-4 (neither should be on a top pair, but the Isles aren't going to be bringing in two legit top pair dmen this offseason).
If we could go into next year with
With Carkner as the #7, I think that would be a very solid defense. Of course, we know it is unlikely that the Isles add a good player, but that doesn't mean you get rid of Streit or Visnovsky.
Most likely, if both re-signed, I think we would be looking at:
With Donovan or De Haan coming up with the first injury. I think this d would be ok (not great, but ok) if we could bring in a coach who would get our forwards to help out on D.
Funny thing about our d this year...the top-6 have not played a single game together. Carkner got hurt before Vis came, and Strait went down a few games after.
