Did Lombardi do enough for this team at the trade deadline?

Let me preface this by saying that I love DL....I mean, who wouldn't with the success we had last year?

But I think it's clear now that our D is much worse than it was last year, STL's D got better, and there's the difference. The holes that Mitchell and Greene have left are now glaringly noticeable and could be the biggest reason why this team doesn't make a significant run in this years postseason.

DL tried to replace Mitchell with Regehyr....we all know now that the two don't even compare, but where was the band aid for Greene...Ellerby? Did DL fail to realize there was a good chance that Greene wouldn't be ready for playoff action? Was he to quick to assume that Muzzin and Ellerby were ready for the big show?

It's been a long time since I've been concerned about the depth of this team, but suddenly our D looks a hell of a lot like an average team.

DL had the green light to improve this team, if needed, to make another run. Looking back, I'm very disappointed that he didn't do more.
