That's what I'm saying. We don't even have two good defensemen. We have a bunch of battlers who can't skate or third line midgets. I'm not going with the program on this one. This is not a championship defense and there were countless defensemen on the market. We didn't need a $7m dollar guy either.
And we all saw what Samsonov does in the playoffs, we didn't need to sign him.
I like Johnson, but I'm just saying he might not have been the best choice for a team that already has issues with grit.
Speed and skill is fun to watch, but it doesn't win championships unless there is defense and grit too.
I hope I'm wrong, but I don't think I am.
