If Belle is Hedican, great. Hedican is solid and can skate. he gives you the idea he can be more than he is but is the kind of guy most teams would trade for at playoff time.

Fransson and Daley are likely NHlers IMO
Grossman, Erskine Jancevski Nickerson Fistric, if two make it along with Belle it means 5 homegrown d-men, That is awesome production given we went years without producing decent production from the farm .
