He's unproven in the sense that he doesn't have much NHL experience but when he has played, he's looked great. I do think we need a defensively responsible depth defenseman (how's that for alliteration?) though. But even without Fischer, a top 4 of Lidstrom, Kronwall, Schneider, and Chelios should suffice.
