Add Markov (hopefully), Gorges and Subban and we are only missing 1 solid righthanded Dman for next year. My dream being Weber this summer.
A team built like that does not need a big center. Besides, we can't have Weber and a star center like Staal or Getzlaf, and I prefer having Weber.
You've read my mind... more or less. I think the return of Markov would be a bonus so I think we need to have a plan B. It's too bad that Brendon Nash has been injured all year. He looked like he had the poise to play in the NHL and just needed a little more experience. Counting on him now would be a big gamble.
But I am all for adding a big, rugged RH d-man. Weber is probably out of our reach considering our salary commitments and the FA's on the team that we need to sign. Looking at a 2nd tier defenseman that fits that profile might be more feasible.
