As far as this year is concerned, I can't see the point in giving up significant assets to replace an injured Mitchell. Next season we will begin to see some young talent available to help with our third line needs and defensive call-up depth from the Moose. Now is the time for Gillis to show patience and to stay the course.

If Mitchell is not returning next year, we should be able to pick up veteran defensive help for a low asset cost in the off-season.

Of course, if someone is off-loading a contract for little in return, another Ehrhoff deal, then I am all for shoring up the defence!
