Carrying 8 D is idiotic from a salary cap perspective... and we're not going to be playing 7 D with our group of forwards. Not only that, didn't Carolina have a PP specialist down there, or am I making that up? Our best PP D are also are best D...

Of course, things change when you don't know the rules.
