Meanwhile, we only have one top 2 D man, who plays best on the right side. It doesn't make sense. It's a bad allocation of resources.
Is it totally against the laws of hockey physics to have 3 solid pairings of defenseman? 3 Righties in Bieksa, Tanev and Corrado to go with 3 lefties in Hamhius, Edler and Garrison all sharing the same amount of ice time and give the most to the pairing that are playing the best at the moment of the game? The two rightie rookies in Corrado and Tanev pair up with two experienced lefties? What's not to like?
As for Corrado, we have no choice he pretty much gets thrown in to the fire due to our cap situation and to Gillis stating that he is going with the kids next season. He fits exactly what Gillis is spewing, so there you have it, the missing rightie.
