All of which makes me open to moving Quaider and replacing him with a LH'er. If that guy could bump Ference down to play with Hamilton, all the better.
That's why I wanted Allen on this team. I know he isn't a pmd, but he would be a solid addition. Another name comes to my mind is Hjalmarsson, not a pmd too, but a good option to play on the second pair.

as for your other point, i can agree with that. however i am a big McQuaid fan and for what he gets paid your not gonna hear me say i want to trade him. i can understand your concern though and think it is a good point.

you may disagree but i think McQuaid could be a #4 defensemen. he is still young and defensemen take longer to reach their full potential. i think he is more than capable of playing in that role.

Chara-Boychuk
Seidenberg-McQuaid
Ference-Hamilton

maybe try it out and see how it goes? also maybe Hamilton takes the bull by the horns and hits the ground running? either way i expect these six guys, in some sort of combination, will be our starting defense. as the season goes on we may see some moves, but i hope not because i love these six defensemen
McQuaid isn't a top 4.
