I expect an O'Donnell-Doughty pairing to start the season. But I look for O'Donnell's minutes to decrease over the course of the season and Doughty to get a new main partner somewhere down the road.

It's obvious to me that a move to acquire another defenseman has everything to do with Hickey. Drewiske will take a #6/7 d-spot, it all comes down to whether or not Hickey works his way into a big-club 3rd pairing spot this preseason.
