If he doesn't make the team and he clears waivers then just like that he's our number 5 center (maybe number 6 with Rypien potentially being number 5). It adds depth once again to a position that we aren't that strong in. We've got the wings covered pretty good and now it looks like our depth on defence is starting to look good as well.

Without SOB and Bieksa we've got potentially 8 solid NHL defencemen (if you include Sweatt) and that's not even counting Baumgartner who can play a game or two if needed.

Ideally we'll add another defencemen or two that can play some minutes if needed but we've got a pretty solid top four in terms of health concerns so maybe we won't need to go 10 deep this season.

I still think we should aim to go 10 deep (including Baumer and Sweatt) which means we likely need to add one more defencemen (Hamhuis, Ehrhoff, Edler, Ballard, Salo, Rome, Alberts, Sweatt, Baumgartner).
