Downie has yet to prove he's an NHL player. And from what we've seen this year, I'd say Sbisa is at least 2 years away from being a top-4 on a contender.

Who's going to step up and play top-4 then? Parent is 1, but as far as 2nd pairing offensive guys, we are looking pretty thin for the next year or two outside of Carle.
