With a healthy Sauer (fingers crossed)...with Erixon..with Mcilrath in the pipeline....they are loaded with Talent and size at D, but they don't have all the pieces...Yet, they have the trade pieces to get that if they want (I have no clue about FAs..and I ain't looking!
First things first, lets continue to pound the Capitals D on Wednesday and force them to be the one to make the mistakes.....Mistakes is what this series is all about...
Well Weber & Suter will be FA's...but I don't think either are necessary.
McDonagh is a hands down stud. At 22. In his first full year. Will be an All-Star for many years to come.
Sauer was great before getting hurt. He'll be back next year (
). He's 24.
All-Star Girardi can go back to his original pairing with a healthy, back-to-form All-Star Staal.
DelZotto had a tremendous bounce-back year. Oh yeah, he's 21. Erixon, McIlrath, and Stralman will compete for roster spots. 21, 20, 25, with the first two being first round picks.
This team has 5 all-star caliber defensemen, with 2 first round prospects in waiting, all 25 or younger (sans Girardi). I think as MDZ gets older and bigger he'll be able to run the power play. If not, we also have plenty of trade bait. Very optimistic.
