i don't think we focused too much on defense. i think we focused too much on crappy players that after all the bs hype turned out to be trash.
of those dmen listed only staal and del zotto are nhlers at the moment...and those are the only 2 guys in the nhl on the blueline that we drafted.
people act like we've got all this depth and talent on the blueline cause we used all these 1st round picks on dmen when reality mcdonagh and girardi, 2 guys we didn't draft, need to play 30:00/game cause we can't even construct a 3rd pair.
and i know hindsight is 20/20 but this wouldn't even be a topic if we had drafted guys like weber, letang, green, etc on the blueline (ie guys that are actually good) with our defensive picks. or forwards that were actually good with our forward picks
