It's a good thing I'm not a scout because I went 2 for 7, Hjalmarsson and Ahnelov have really come along and are showing the offensive part of their game. Both imo have potential to be top 4 defenceman the question is whether that time is next year for Ahnelov?
Clearing out Hale doesn't mean a whole lot, we still have seven defensemen on one way contracts. He'd have to perform leaps and bounds better than he did at camp last season and he technically made the team last season.
