Really? 8 defensemen?

We got Schultz, Petry and Whitney. We don't need Potter on the PP anymore.
Peckham is slow and hasn't done anything in terms of development over the last year. I'd take Sutton over him.

I don't see why we've got 8 d-men... I kinda think there's a trade in the works... weird... really didn't think that we'd see Peckham get resigned. Makes no sense at all.
I'd rather have this than the alternative of having only 6 or 7 D that are reasonably NHL capable. Injuries are going to inevitably hit this team sooner or later, and if we have to risk losing a few guys over waivers in order to establish some real call up depth, then so be it. Do you want to see another Dean Arsene play a significant number of games with the big club again?
