If you're consistently playing them against 1st lines, your team is in trouble imo. That includes more than just defensive zone starts. I'm sure they did all right this season, but they shouldn't be a long term solution.
They are not a long term solution..

Next season they will likely be our second pair as far as minutes go at least for the first half. They are solid enough to let us add our younger players to the roster and let them grow.

Long term if they are still around after next year they would be our third pairing with Elliott/Siemens as our second pair.

We are a rebuilding team just like OTT. That includes defense.. Your not telling anyone anything they don't know.
