This is why the team's inability to bring up even a decent top 4 defense man or back up goalie is such a disappointment and problem. As it stands right now we have to pay free agent prices for all the top 4 defenseman and both goalies. Sure you can do it on the cheap but that also means lack of quality. I don't feel like going trough every roster right now, but I imagine at least 20-25 of the other teams have at least 1 top defenseman who is on an entry level deal or decent 2nd contract that they brought up in their system. I think this is a major failing on the scouting and management of the organization (and has been for at least a decade) and it's becoming more of an issue as we get further into the cap era.
