Hagelin may or may not make the team. But there is a chance he makes it. If he doesn't you can put a guy like MZA in there who also costs under 1M.

2) The defense would be terrible. Aside of Staal and Girardi you are looking at a combined 2.5 years of NHL experience in your bottom four.
The defense would not be terrible. Staal/Girardi/McDonagh/Sauer were fine last season and should all be better this year. Erixon has been playing against men for a couple years now and arguably has as much experience as McDonagh/Sauer, albeit at a lesser league. The team expects him to make the roster out of camp, and from all accounts he should step right in and fill a 3rd line spot from day 1. The wild card is the #6 dman, and while it sure would be nice if MDZ could earn it, that remains to be seen. If not, a guy like Eminger could be brought back, also for 1M.
