Andrew MacDonald is hardly considered a prospect anymore. Should carry 1st unit duties with Streit out of lineup. Could potentially establish himself as a bonafide #1-2NHL defensemen this season.

Haven't heard much on Kohn but at this point he seems like a reliable call-up, kind of what you see is what you get. You don't notice him very much which of course is a good thing.
Let's not forgot that AMac was not good offensively at all last year. He made crisp passes, and was sound in his defensive zone, but much like Martinek, he has not shown the ability to put all his skills together to become effective offensively.

Unless, this facet of his game improves, he won't be a bona fide top 2 dman in the league. He will be on our top pairing, but his skills, as of right now are that of a bottom 4 guy, not a top 2.

There is no sugar coating the Streit injury. However, with so many dmen, competition will force guys to play at their best. In a strange way, it's an excellent litmus test for our yonger dmen AMac, Hillen, and whomever else gets called up.
