Can we use another big mean 6'4" top 4 d-man...hell yeah but with Regehr re-signing taht market is pretty thin. May as well be patient and develop Tinordi and maybe sign a 1-2 year patch.
Keeping in mind every game from the moment Emelin got hurt until we were eliminated from the playoffs, it was blatantly clear to me that our problems were deeper than just our goalies having a bad game. We were putrid defensively. The defense we had (whether you include Emelin or not) was not a defense that was going to go particularly deep into the playoffs, so I don't see why it's unreasonable to expect/hope for upgrades.
