What are the Avs going for here? Anyone they can find that can't score? I feel a Bouwmeester trade for Wilson and Sgarbossa coming on.
Zanon is a quality NHL defensemen though. If Hejda, SoB, Wilson etc. struggle again like they did last year they can be sat or role diminished by Hunwick/Zanon. Carkner could not take minutes for Hejda it would be mental. Zanon, Hejda, RoB, and EJ sounds like a very good PK unit as well.

EJ still needs a partner though. As of now, it looks like Hejda will be paired again with EJ to start the season
