If you sign Orpik, Rozsival, and Campbell. You have 6 defensemen all with contracts of two years or more (you're not signing any of those guys for less than 2 years.)

Therefore, you get stuck in a spot where unless you make a trade you have no room for bringing up players from Hartford fulltime.

I'd rather sign Paul Mara to a one year contract, then use Backman as your #7. Sign Orpik and Rozsival and you're set for the year. That's my opinion anyway. It's either Rozy or Campbell not both.
