All the guys on the blue line will have to earn their spots this year if they're not named Weber or Suter. My guess is Klein and Bouillon are pretty assured their spots. Everyone else will be fighting for a spot. I ultimately think if Franson signs that he and Parent will be given a chance to win the third pairing positions but if they falter in the slightest, Ellis, Josi, Blum, Laakso and Sulzer will be waiting in the wings to pounce on the opportunity to displace them. The depth the team has on the blue line will provide a ton of competition and the cream should rise to the top. I think all these guys have learned that if they don't play to their potential, Poile will go out and sign a veteran defenseman, see Bouillon.
