They still have Sidney Crosby, though...
You're right about all-in. Presume that's a cap situation that Shero is making the most of. Morrow's development is sketchy, he could still be a good player, but they've got 2-3 defensemen ahead of him in the pipeline. Nonetheless, it's all, as I said earlier, depth, between the picks and prospects. And sure, that hurts, but not in a significant way.
