Yup, I say add Gaulton too. If G recovers from his injury, he'll be a top-4 defenseman. The goalies (Wiik and Zaba) will never be more than backups, if that. Even if they pleasantly surprise us, they will be no more than low-end starters like Cloutier. Those aren't the players that help you win the playoffs or even get into the playoffs.

At least a #6 defenseman is useful in the Stanley Cup Finals. A backup just sits there and a low-end starter is playing golf on another team. I think goalies should be top 5 prospects or nothing more than projects or even suspects.

Also, if Chad Johnson isn't getting any votes in his 3 rounds on the voting list, I can't imagine W or Z getting them either. One vote per round maybe... maybe not even.
