I was thinking the same thing....

NHL: Kaberle, McCabe, Klee, Jackman, Marchment, Berg, Pushor, Belak

AHL: Pilar, Colaiacovo, Harrison, Bell, Hedin, Kondratiev, Chartier, Kelly

That's some solid depth. No one really stands out at this time, but top-to-bottom it's pretty solid. I dont think there's been this much depth on the defence for some time and I could easily see us packaging a couple together to snag a more significant asset. And this doesnt even include guys like White and Doherty still in juniors or NCAA.
