Our previous management believed that larger DMen are not a target for the draft (except Tinordi).
Gainey/Gauthier put us in this position. Bergevin is trying with the addition of Murray (who is vilified by a lot of people here even before the season starts)
The Gauthier era hurt this team a lot.
How about we let the prospects develop before we panic? Why do we need to have things fixed at absolutely this minute, can we not have a bit of patience? There are a lot of armchair GM's on this forum, but none have any patience, a lost quality in my opinion. The Hab's have decent depth at D, even if they are just short term filler. MB has said from the beginning that he is building through the draft, b/c in his opinion that is the best way to find franchise players.
