Josi and Blum are both actually pretty responsible defensively. They're not "shutdown" guys by any means, but neither was Hamhuis. It seems to be the model to go toward guys that can play both ends of the rink. As token says, Foss sort of plays in the Parent mold, but I don't know that I'd hold my breath for ever seeing him in the NHL. Worst case, when\if Parent leaves, we sign someone to play on the third pairing cheaply and fill that role.
