Hamhuis - Suter (assuming he can step in and play top 4 minutes)
Zidlicky - ???
Thats a bleak picture and unless we get some of our targets...we will be struggling on defense next year...and I'm thinking REALLY struggling.
I think it's more realistic to peg Suter with Zidlicky. With the loss of Hnidy, Eaton, and Arkhipov, we have around 2.5 million extra to toss around in the UFA market. When you combine that with the 6 million we already had to spend, we can now make the necessary waves. That's damn near 9 million dollars to deal with for three players. I say three (two top 4's, 1 top 6 center) because I think we have three holes that cannot be filled from within. I think 2 mil on the UFA top 4 Dman, 3 on the UFA top 2 Dman, and 3.5 mil on the UFA center would set us up nicely.
