As far as Bergevin goes...you can't have a contingency plan for everything. If Plekanec was hurt long term, would people begrudge him for not getting a #2C "just in case"? What about if it was a top-six winger? A #1 D? A starting goalie? Where does it end?
Listen....

You cannot insure against any of Plek, Markov, Subban, or MaxPac going down to injury! That is a non-starter... these are core players that would require expensive trade deadline purchases.

All I am saying is that we should have picked up a veteran D to insulate our already hurting defensive depth... trade away maybe a 2nd or 3rd round pick.
