Weber's not going to happen. Doughty is an RFA and isn't going to happen. There's an outside chance at Bogosian because Atlanta seems to have already locked in to Fugly and a few other guys and he's expendable. I think Yandle could be gotten because of the ownership mess in Phoenix, but we'd still have to overpay.

If Lidstrom retires, we're looking at guys like Pitkanen and Ehrhoff as likely signings. And then I'm not sure there's any Dman on the market I'd want to give a whole lot over $4m to (in cap space). If Ericsson has a strong playoffs, I'd consider re-signing him, going with Stuart, Kronwall, Rafalski, E and Kindl as our top5 and see what vet D shakes out of the tree for around $3m. If we're spending much over $4m, I'd rather add a higher impact player elsewhere.

RIP David
