But if you're a team that is built on goaltending and D, how can you afford not to pay you're number 3 that kind of money? Pay your number 4-6 guys a million each and give Hamhuis 3.5. That would total 17.5 million for your 6 d-men, two of which are elite guys and one who is a very solid number 3. At some point something has to give unfortunately.

Regardless of what you and I think should be slotted for salaries for certain positions, who is easier to replace at this point, Hamhuis or Arnott?
