Defense

Does anyone find it strange that our team only has 5 one way defense signed right now? With no real sure fire NHL ready prospect coming up.

You have:

Franson who based on the amount of time that he has developed should be ready. But speed is still an issue. 52 points in 76 games and a -1 rating pretty solid.

Laakso who is coming off of surgery and a season where he scored 2 goals and 7 points in 42 games

Sulzer on a one way with 3 games NHL experience. Also coming off a shoulder surgery.

Blum fresh out of Junior and didn't really blow the doors off in his first AHL action.

Ellis way to small and young right now.


Is DeVries the answer at a lesser deal? In a mentor type role?

Will Poile really pick up a player off waivers this year after or during camp?

Or do we just make sure that Weber and Suter never leave the ice. God help us if Weber and/or Suter get injured.
