THere's a lot of doubt that he's a top four defenseman on this team. I'll take Staal over him 100 times out of 100. McDonagh is obvious. And Del Zotto is awful on right D.

So what it comes down to is what do you want to pay your third pair left defenseman and how long do you keep him? A major part of us not making it further in the playoffs was that MDZ was forced to play so many minutes at RD. We cannot go into next season with him or Stralman penciled in there on the depth chart.
