Leave MAYBE one spot open for competition on D.

Elliott's performance last year should have been prime example #1 of why you shouldn't just give these guys spots. I like Elliott as a player and I believe he'll be good-great someday, but you couldn't just let him be fed to the wolves for an entire season. He clearly needed to be back in the minors. You can't pencil in Elliott and Barrie until they compete and win a job.

Bring in lower end vets and let the kids beat them out.
