The problem is that we have quantity over quality. Ekholm needs at least another full season, still struggles with consistency. Ellis is a decent prospect, but looks more like a specialist, and the clock is ticking on Blum. Outside of that...foss, bitetto, aronson, valentine, COR...it's all depth.

As I've been saying, a top four d-man has to be just as high on the shopping list as a top six forward. You're starting to see the effects of playing too many minutes on Josi's defensive game, and Bartley isn't a long term answer at number 4.
