There are days when our defense looks way better than it should, and then there are days where they look like a box of factory reject dildos. I still just can't believe how many forwards we've added in the last few years considering how many quality defensemen we lost. It shouldn't be so easy for the D to be this useless. The defense absolutely needs to get stronger so they can stop having to rely on luck and can just start being good.
Maybe someone on the team should call out Franzen...
This is literally the first time I've got to comment on the trade, I've been traveling for business and not near my computer.
missed you Kip!
No good defensemen were moved, and they were all rentals. The only reason they traded for Legwand even though he isn't signed next year is because they were desperate for a center, more than a d-man even, and him waiving his NTC to come here and the fact that he's from Detroit and grew up a Wings fan should mean they can extend him if they want to. Vanek or Moulson are probably going to test the market no matter what, and they don't play center, so they weren't options.
i think if we get health and we decided to resign leggy wouldnt we have a over abundance of Cs?
