Couldnt agree more. This lineup has needed a couple of dependable big bodied workhorses to complement our lineup of racehorses for 3 years now. Hal Gill and Paul Gaustad are two guys that would have been fantastic acquisitions for depth, size, and defence. If this rash of injuries came a month earlier Id like to think that 'Laurel Restington' would have made a few of the moves Im talking about.
We didn't have what it took to pick up Gaustad, a first round pick. We used that on Quincey. Would you rather have a 4th line center or a top-4 defenseman?
