Well, that being a solid top 4 is your opinion. To me, that's not very good and we'd still be paper thin in depth. Emelin and Diaz, IMO, should not be penciled in as top 4 guys at the beginning of the season, on a competitive healthy squad.

Sadly, the UFA crop has little in terms of quality guys, so it's not through there we can bolster the D on the top end. This is where I mention again that Bouwmeester was available for a ridiculously low price.
