With Markov healthy, and Subban in, we have two great puck movers. It could be better, I personally would like another one, but that is how it goes. Gill and Gorges are a great 3rd shutdown pair, and Spacek and Hammer are both top 4 defensemen.

I think it was pretty obvious this year that our biggest weakness was secondary scoring, not defensive depth.

I just don't think getting rid of Hamrlik just for the sake of opening up cap space is a positive move. His contract comes off the books in one year anyways, whats the point?
