Sutter is awesome yes, and Dumoulin and Puliot are gonna be valuable in a couple years....but the Michalek trade hurt us...and hurt us bad. Unless someone thinks there was another stud in camp that can take Top 4 minutes outside of Despres...

Letang-Despres
Orpik-Martin
Niskanen-Engo

One of Orpik or Martin could be expendable...

Letang-Despres
Orpik-Niskanen
Strait-Engo

Perhaps? Martin + TK + whatever for a wing. Setoguchi?
I have no idea. It might come tomorrow, at mid-season, at the deadline or next off-season. I'd rather him be patient and get the right guy than panic.

And honestly, if Despres can actually play well enough to keep that spot with Letang I really like the rest of that defense.
