I disagree with Lindgren/Ruutu being fully replaceable.

True that we have depth at those 4th liners, but Lindgren provides hella good 4th line center role and is a good PK/faceoff guy, with experience too. Ruutu, I just likes the kid and he has worked very hard to be where he is now.. I still remember many wanted to trade him last year and talking about no spot for Ruutu last year and blah blah blah.. the kid has earned his time with the nucks late last year, I'd say protect him

true that Slegr is a #6/7 D man, but he is a #6/7 D depth that brings experience and some leadership, which both Allen or Jokela or Mojzis doesnt bring. At this time of the year, last year before CBA, window of winning it all is getting smaller.

I do expect to lose maybe 1 or 2 at the waiver draft.. but thats the same for any deep teams in the NHL..
