Our Defense

For anyone who thinks these two signings are bad, I actually think we are as deep as anyone on the back line.

We have no #1, but we have 4 top 4 Defensive minded players (Beauch, allen, Lydman and Sbisa) Everyone of these players are top 4 players, just not a Suter/Weber/Keith etc. We have 1 offensive minded player in Fowler and 1 specialist in Souray. We now have some size which was our #1 problem on Defense last year.

You may laugh, but I think Sbisa will be our best Defensive player this year. He is going to thrive in this system and will probably play with Allen as a top 2 pairing. He wont have the points that Fowler does, but he will have a career year. Also people forget, but Lydman was on our top pairing his first year. He should have a bounce back year.

Clark, Vatanen, Lindholm should be maturing right when these contracts are expiring, and there is no reason we cant make a trade if we need to at the deadline.
