There really isn't any room.
The team only has 5 proven NHL regular defensemen. Weber seems like a good bet for a 6th. Emelin may or may not pan out as a 7th. That's it. So there is plenty of room for Hannan. (Or Sopel, Mara, whoever). I think it would be pretty wreckless to count on Diaz for anything. Nash looks promising, but I think he pretty much proved last season in Hamilton that he'd benefit a lot from another year there. Proved that he had real NHL potential. Proved that he needed another year too.

I'm a little surprised to see Bernier mentioned by some. He has basically been a washout... how does anybody hope for anything but the silent version of Latendresse from him?

It sounds like Drury isn't going to be healthy enough to ever play again, so I don't think people should be listing him?
