Just to set it straight before I unleash a bold possibility...I really like our defense. Its young and effective. Barring injuries, all signs point to McDonagh and Sauer only getting better. I don't think it's fair to compare their situation to that of Del Zotto's sophomore year. DZ plays a style of defense that is inherently more prone to slumping I think, not to mention he was considerably younger going into his second season than them.

Only thing I would do is re-sign eminger and let him and the rest of the kids fight for the 5-7 spots.

That being said, I wanted to pose this question: Suppose none of the kids run away with a spot on the 3rd pair. Then suppose that Wade Redden comes into camp in great shape, surprises everyone, and plays well enough to earn a spot fair and square over anyone else. Not saying this will occur, but we all know some crazy unexpected things tend to happen in training camp. What do we do in that situation?
