Sbisa/ Visnovsky
Vatanen/ Lydman

In theory... That's a well rounded d corps. Offensive guy on each pairing, along with a defence first guy. Let's see it in practice first.
If it were me, I'd probably start with Lydman/Visnovsky. That pairing was our best not too long ago, and injuries really hurt their ability to be effective last season. If we can get them going again, we'd have two pretty good pairings in Franky/Fowler and Lydman/Visnovsky.

If Sbisa can prove he belongs there instead of Lydman, then let him earn that spot, but I think I'd go with the tried and true pairing that helped get us into the playoffs.
