So, with the whole Zid fiasco, let's assume for a moment he's traded. For the purposes of this discussion, let's also assume it's for a pick (not a player). Zanon and Lundin will either be moved or not re-signed. Let's say Stoner is let go because of belief in Falk replacing him. This is our blue line:
How do we think those [empty] spaces will fill? Here's a possibility:
That's two second pairings and a third pairing, which is honestly better than what we have this year. We end up with two pairings having a legitimate offensive threat (Spurgeon/Prosser) and one pairing that has two guys who can at least not panic when moving the puck. A bit of a weakness though is the lack of right handed shots. Only Prosser and Spurgeon have a right shot out of that group. Assuming we can't get Suter in free agency, but go after someone else, what would the defense look like?
