IMO We can't go into the season relying on Erixon/McIlrath to fill the 6 spot, because one injury happens and we're right back where we started with an Erixon-McIlrath pair as our bottom pair. You think that pair would play significant minutes in the playoffs? Additionally, you're not taking handedness into account. Stralman and Del Zotto looked like crap on the right side. Someone on the left side needs to be traded, whether it's for a RD or a top forward.

If it's an UFA vet plus Schultz on the right side, that sounds good. Then Erixon and McIlrath are in waiting in Hartford. THAT is the depth we need if we want to go far.
