Has nobody else noticed we need some D?

It's frustrating as a fan of the Bolts to look at the draft/beginning of free agency and see that our biggest concern (defense) has not been addressed. How is no one talking about buying out/trading Eric Brewer or Sami Salo? Why were we not trying to recruit Andrew Ference or Rob Scuderi? Why was Benoit Pouliot (who was on pace for a 40 point season) allowed to leave for a pay DECREASE? and why did we not draft Seth Jones? (though Jonathan Drouin is a fantastic addition, despite his ELC being ludicrously priced.) I'm not against the buyout of Vinny, nor the signing of Valteri Filppula but with such glaring problems in our defense how has there been no motion for an NHL-caliber defensemen? Coming from a fan i just don't get what Yzerman and company are trying to accomplish, provided we had some sort of defensive play we very well could've made the playoffs being that we ranked third in goals scored out of the whole NHL! With so much talent up the pipeline in Syracuse how could they afford to ignore our swiss cheese like defense?
