Our defense seemed to handle rather well in the brief time Jones was injured. The hole trading Jones would leave is definitely not as important as the good Couture would bring to our offense.

Other than 2010 Chicago has there been a team in the last decade that won the Cup with three #1 defensemen?

Is this + Couture really worse than Jones being on the defense?

Josi - Weber
Del Zotto - Ellis
Ekholm - Bartley

That's a serviceable defense to make a push for a playoff spot. We could probably get a third pairing RHD in FA anyways.
