The minute we were forced to draft Seth Jones I knew there would be an issue with our D-core. I'm not saying he is or will be a bad player. I just knew we wouldn't go after a solid defenseman in free agency once he was drafted and that is what we needed. Would we be better off this season if Barkov had fallen to us and we were able to sign a player like Farence? I think we would be.

Simple fact is we don't have an elite goalie to make up for this young d-core and it is gong to kill us.

On the bright side we are 1-1 against the stanley cup champs so far this season and that is without one of our very best and arguably most important players. Once Rinne went down and they knew he wouldn't be back for a good long time, Poile should be shopping some of the players we have of value to work toward the future.
