In a couple of years, I think Staal/MDZ will form a legitimate first pairing. If McDonagh can be a solid second pairing guy, I think we'll be in good shape going forward

I agree. Staal and Del Zotto are our most talented young defensemen and have the highest chance of forming our top pairing. I think Del Zotto's game will really round out in the next couple years and Staal... well he's already shown what he's capable of. He's getting **** on this year by some people who are simply vultures when it comes to a player that's struggling, and it's completely unwarranted. The kid is going to be a defensive pillar on this team for the next 12 years. He's in his 3rd year in the NHL and is eating up big minutes while being matched against some of the best players in the world. Get off his case already.

Now that my rant is over, I will say that I'm excited by the potential versatility in the defensive depth. We're not overloaded with one type of defensemen, and that's a rarity.
