Bad defensemen? Hardly. Inconsistent, sure, but not "bad" by any stretch of the imagination.

Teams have scouts at games, but that didn't stop Gomez from ending up in Montreal, or Dallas flipping Neal and Niskanen for Goligoski, or Burke landing Lupul AND Gardiner for a struggling Beauchemin. Thankfully "potential" means something to the people who actually make decisions. Del Zotto was excellent last year, and while he's been up and down this year, is only 22 years old. Plenty of time to stabilize and grow.
