I must confess, I still believe (Still believe!)
When I'm not watching I lose my mind...
Give me a sign!!! Hit me, Crankshaft, one more time!

That defense is terrible.
Paul Martin is our best D-man. Period. Trading him AND Niskanen AND replacing them with basically 2 rookies is just... why would you do it?

There will always have to be compromises (well, usually) under a salary cap but those aren't the kind of guys you let go unless you have to. They don't have to. There's plenty of other fat they can cut off that's more replaceable. Guys like Niskanen and Kennedy and Jokinen go before anyone. You let a Morrow or even Iginla or Dupuis go before you let one of those guys go. Really, the high priced guy they should probably ditch is Fleury. You know, the guy they devote $5 million of cap space to who they aren't even using in the playoffs.
As for getting rid of Martin. Come on. They're lucky to have him for two more years. He's arguably their best overall D. No way.

Harrington is going to be in the NHL next year, if Dale Hunter is right. What a logjam at D we've got... and that's assuming we trade Niskanen.
