The question I have been wrestling with is this...

If Suter leaves do we need a top pairing defenseman, or a second pairing defenseman who is reliable enough to eat up ~20 minutes per night?

Josi looked good, but so did Blum. Blum could always rebound. Josi could struggle, or he could excel. The gamble is do you need to replace Suter via trade/free agency, or if you need to replace Josi?

It's a very tough call to make. Seems like the easiest solution is to just re-sign Suter
