Also Owen MacDonald will compete for a top 12 spot...his play will make one of the 12 listed expendable.

That's how I see it.
Athanasiou and picks for a top pairing D?

Broadhurst, Domi, Griffith
Horvat, Tierney, Anderson
M Rupert, R Rupert, Welychka
Elie, Jammes, MacDonald

Trade, Harrington
Maatta, Hughes
Import, Raine

Or they stick with Ferry up front and MacDonald gets some Junior B time like the Ruperts and Welychka did in their 16 year old seasons. And maybe just trade the import pick to develop Liberati (95). Centorame and DeLorenzo also play B? Also, looking at those forwards, all of them could potentially return for the 2013/14 season. Broadhurst could be OA as could Griffith depending on what the NHL teams think of his all around game. Very deep team next year despite this year's losses.
