Ya we can keep saying "we will sign them in FA" but people said that last year with Suter who isnt looking like he will go to an eastern team. Its easy to say we will throw money at defenders but its hard to have them come here.
Aging D? Kimo is the only d man they have in the top 6 that's over 29 y/o. After Koekkoek there was no draft pick that would be a lock to be more then a 3rd pairing dman.
If they were going with a center I was hoping they would go with Matteau or Samulsen who are both bigger and more physical.
