Only problem is we dont have anyone to replace them.
I guess we can look at free agency, but there arenone of these top 2 defender type of players out there. A lot of the Coburn/Carle's and less
Meszaros will take the #1 spot soonish, he just needs a couple of years of seasoning as the nr3 guy behind Timonen and Pronger.
Before anyone claims he will not ever be a #1 defender because he wasn't that in Tampa. He was too young for that role and the supporting cast was nothing but crap.
Meszaros-Coburn will be our #1-2 punch after few years, the problem will be the #3-4 guys once Timonen and Pronger are retired/broken. That's why Homer should trade Carle/Versteeg for a 1st rounder in 2011 draft and pick a defenseman. That prospect should be NHL ready in 2-4 years. The other #3-4 can be obtained via free agency.
