The other option if they aren't two-way eligible is to trade one or two vets and hope the young guns are ready to be FT NHLers.
I see them moving Martin and Lovejoy and then keeping 8 d-men on the NHL roster: Letang, Orpik, Niskanen, Michalek, Despres, Engelland, Strait, Bortuzzo. I also wouldn't be surprised if Despres spends another year in Wilkes-Barre. Disappointed, but not surprised.
