Yeah but the point that's been made over and over is that this is the same "depth" that was supposed to shine at the moment we went through our ugliest defensive stretch of the entire year.

It's natural for people to be skeptical about the move until Bergevin makes a significant upgrade to the actual talent that this vaunted "depth" is supposed to support.

It reminds me a little of last year when we signed Bouillon (which I was not opposed to myself, mind you) - but the chorus was, "great depth, won't play all the games, good 7th defenseman!", etc. Fast forward to this year and our depth guy played the entire year on the second pairing.
