A) Montador type isn't being signed, and Alberts IS that signing. #5-6 guy.

Hamhuis-Bieksa
Edler-Salo
Ballard-Alberts
Rome, Tanev, Parent

B) Gillis is stocking right back up the depth to 10 NHL capable blueliners again.

Hamhuis-Bieksa
Edler-Salo
Ballard-XXX
Alberts, Rome, Tanev, Parent



Option C being Ballard moved but I'm starting to think that is not in the cards.
Think that would be a big mistake as Montador, while not a true top four guy, has at least the capability (my opinion) of filling in that role if required (temporarily).

Sure we may have 9/10 capable D - but how many are capable top four D (that includes injury prone Salo)?
