I don't know if we can afford to have any more smaller players on our D, though, and invariably the puck-moving types who become available are smaller/softer players.
Well, assume everyone is healthy, we have:

Markov-Komi
Hamer-Gorges
Bouillon-O'Byrne

Swap out Bouillon for Preissing and I don't think we're really getting smaller. Even if we play smaller.

Markov/Komi -- Nough said.
Hammer/Preissing -- Good compliments, insulation for Preissing.
Gorges/O'Byrne -- See above.
