If the injury recovery time is as I understand it, we will have Gill, Markov, Spacek, Campoli, Gorges and Subban which is not at all a young defence. If we add Komi, when do we develop our youngsters?
Diaz is waiver ineligible, so he can spend some time in Hamilton if needed.

Long term, will also need to add a veteran dman for the next couple of seasons. The UFA market is looking thin (especially with Coburn now signed).
