You're either missing my point on purpose or you're not paying attention.
We had Sieloff, Bateman, and Koekkoek out for the year, basically. If we had ANY depth back on the blue-line, Vail wouldn't have played on defence, and we wouldn't have had to use McNaughton back there for a few games, either.
The talent level wasn't bad (wasn't great, either), but that wasn't the issue. It was a pure lack of depth, which was exposed because of injuries. We can't afford to have that happen again next year, so drafting a bunch of flyers because we have a young team shouldn't be an option.
