Emelin's injury made our weak defense even weaker. The one who suffered the most of his loss was, you guess it, Gorges.

When you pay 4M long-term for a d-man, you expect him to step the hell up when you need him.
You're dilusional if you think Niskanen is better defensively than Diaz.

Gorges would be playing ahead of Gunarsson and Franson, Gardiner has been in and out of the lineup, he can't even crak a weak blueline every night. Good skater but horrible defensively.
