As far as not having any veteran d-men if Jackman is gone, I think their #1 priority this offseason is signing or trading for one.
A position that most teams missing the playoffs are in, they better get it done, or trading EJ was pointless. Kind of sucks when some of the best d-men in the league are all crammed into the central division, and low seed rivals in the West. If they can't afford to pay Brewer and Winchester for 2 months they better be able to afford something better than an expendable top 4 guy (usually a bad contract or 2nd pairing ceiling) or market value free agent.
