Arnott deserves to be brought back for one more year. If we want to contend next year his presence could be a big factor. With this in mind, anything over a year is probably something Id want to stay away from. Theres to much young talent coming up the pipeline. Keep in mind that we will likely free up a spot by not bringing back Nichol. I think that Schwartz starts the year in Peoria. Im not sure exactly how theyll line up, but if we carry 14 forwards:
14) Grachev? McRae? Rattie? Crombeen? Schwartz? Cracknell? FA? As injuries inevitably happen we will find out.
I think that we need someone who can play the top pairing left side for a couple years. That will likely come via FA. Cole isnt in my top 7 right now, id much rather have Colaiacovo as the 6/7 guy. Ryan Suter would be awesome for that pairing, another option I think could be Matt Carle (although he typically played right).
8) (PEO) Russell
9) (PEO) Cole
..Id hope doing this wouldnt suggest we are done with committing to Coles development. I still see him as an NHL dman soon.
